[WORKPLACE] HEALTH HAZARD EVALUATIONS [updated 20 February 2014]
Employees, employee representatives, or employers can ask NIOSH to help learn whether health hazards are present at their place of work. NIOSH may provide assistance and information by phone and in writing, or may visit the workplace to assess exposure and employee health. Based on their findings, NIOSH will recommend ways to reduce hazards and prevent work-related illness. The evaluation is done at no cost to the employees, employee representatives, or employers.
This website shares information about the Health Hazard Evaluation (HHE) Program and allows you to request an evaluation. You can also search thousands of HHE reports or contact us if you have a question.
Watch our newest video NIOSH Health Hazard Evaluations: Sampling for Exposures.
We just released a short video showing how employees help in our evaluations by wearing pumps to measure noise and sample the air for contaminants in their workplace.
