Health and Safety Practices Survey of Healthcare Workers
In 2011, NIOSH researchers conducted a web-based survey of healthcare workers who work with hazardous chemicals. We found employers and employees alike did not always follow best practices.
Within this site, you will learn more about our survey and the chemical hazards we studied. You will also learn how well best practices were followed for handling these chemicals, and steps employers and employees can use to minimize exposure. Finally, you will also learn details about the tools, methods, and strengths and limitations of the survey.
