NIOSH Health Hazard Evaluation (HHE)
Health Hazard Evaluation (HHE)
Program is run by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
An HHE is an evaluation of possible health hazards at a workplace.
Employers, employees, or their union representatives can request an HHE from
NIOSH if they have concerns about health hazards at work. NIOSH responds
to HHE requests in writing, by phone discussions, or by visiting the workplace
to evaluate whether a health hazard to employees caused by exposure to hazardous
materials or conditions exist.
