HEALTH HAZARD EVALUATIONS
Review & Evaluation: National Academies Evaluation
The National Academies has completed their evaluation of the NIOSH Health Hazard Evaluation (HHE) Program. Based on a scoring system of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest, the committee rated both the relevance and impact of the HHE Program as 4. The report noted that “If the committee had not been restricted to the use of integers, both scores would have been between 4 and 5.”
The report contains eight overarching recommendations addressing strategic planning, outreach to increase awareness about the program, HHE report recommendations, occupational heath capacity building, information transfer, policy impacts, emerging hazards, and public health emergencies. NIOSH will review the panel’s findings and recommendations, develop an implementation plan, and revise the Program’s strategic plan. These materials will be presented to the NIOSH Board of Scientific Counselors and will be available for public comment. View the complete text from the program review, including a discussion of the Committee recommendations.
