Dermal Diseases

Outputs: Research to Practice

Historically, NIOSH has been a leader in applying research into workplace solutions that reduce injury and illness. Research to Practice (r2p) is a NIOSH initiative focused on the transfer and translation of research findings, technologies, and information into highly effective prevention practices and products which are adopted in the workplace.

The goal of r2p is to increase workplace use of effective NIOSH and NIOSH-funded research findings. NIOSH continues to work with our partners to focus research on ways to develop effective products, translate research findings into practice, target dissemination efforts, and evaluate and demonstrate the effectiveness of these efforts in improving worker health and safety.

The dermal skin notation workgroup is reviewing the effects of several chemicals on skin irritation and other systemic impacts. This information will be incorporated into the NIOSH Pocket Guide which is widely distributed to individuals in occupational health-related areas as well as employers and workers in various industries throughout the United States.
