Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

DES PLAINES, Ill., April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Citing concerns over the agency's lack of appropriate resources with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) and the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) in a letter to Senator Tom Harken, Chair of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, to request a Government Accountability Office (GAO) study on whether National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) should remain within CDC and, if not, where it should be placed. NIOSH is the nation's only resource for significant research and training in occupational safety and health. Its already inadequate resources have increasingly gone to CDC overhead, and ASSE and other stakeholders have repeatedly opposed CDC's repeated efforts to eliminate funding for research in farming, fishing and forestry and for Education Resources Centers, which educate significant numbers of health and safety professionals, in the Administration's federal budget proposals.
