NIOSH and OSHA investigators will present a series of presentations on recent workplace investigations and health-hazard evaluations. Faculty will describe the workplace settings, the specific approaches involving workplace exposures and medical aspects of the cases, the investigation results, and the recommendations to employees, employers, and other stakeholders. Implications for occupational medicine practice, regulations, research, worker and employer education, and public health practice will be explored. Issues to be addressed will include a combination of newly emerging occupational exposures and illnesses, as well as those exposures which remain the scourge of workers decades after the health risks have been recognized. Time for questions and discussion will be included. This session may be of particular interest to residents and recent graduates.
