About NTP at NIOSH

In accordance with its mandate to protect worker health and safety, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) carries out research projects with NTP funded through an interagency agreement and voluntary allocations. These projects focus on comprehensive assessment of occupationally relevant exposures and immunotoxicology research. Setting priorities in occupational toxicological research is based on several sources of information NIOSH develops and maintains. Sources 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.
