The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s free Health Hazard Evaluation program evaluates new or recently discovered hazards, illnesses from unknown causes, or exposures to chemical, biological and working hazards not regulated by OSHA. For example, an evaluation at one facility found that workers were being exposed to manganese and other chemicals. NIOSH investigators recommended that the employer install safety systems, such as local exhaust ventilation, to reduce worker exposure to dust.
