Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2016

About NTP at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health

In following its mandate to protect workers’ health and safety, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) carries out research projects for NTP to assess the effects of exposure to substances, through an interagency agreement with NIEHS. Setting priorities in occupational toxicological research is based upon several sources of information that NIOSH develops and maintains. These include health hazard evaluations, industry-wide studies, gaps in knowledge identified while developing criteria for recommended standards or criteria documents, current intelligence bulletins, hazard reviews and alerts, other technical reports, and information profiles on chemical hazards. NIOSH research for NTP is funded by both voluntary allocations and an interagency agreement focusing on comprehensive assessment of occupationally-relevant exposures and immunotoxicology research.
