If you believe that a health hazard may exist on your job and would like to have it investigated by professional researchers, you may want to consider contacting NIOSH, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, about doing a Health Hazard Evaluation (HHE.)
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.
