Alerts briefly present new information about occupational illnesses, injuries, and deaths. Alerts urgently request assistance in preventing, solving, and controlling newly identified occupational hazards.
Criteria Documents are developed and recommended by NIOSH for preventing disease and hazardous conditions in the workplace. The recommendations are then transmitted as formal publications to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) or the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) of the U.S. Department of Labor for use in promulgating legal standards.
Hazard Controls (HC) are a brief 1-2 page, user-friendly documents that describe control techniques that have been documented to substantially reduce hazardous exposures to workers in a particular application/industry process.
Hazard IDs (HID) are a brief 1-2 page, user-friendly document that summarize results of NIOSH studies at a specific worksite, that identify new or current health and safety hazards, and offer the best recommendations for control or prevention.
