Cancer, Reproductive, Cardiovascular and Other Chronic Disease Prevention Program

What are our priorities? The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Cancer, Reproductive, Cardiovascular and Other Chronic Disease Prevention (CRC) Program works with partners in industry, labor, trade associations, professional organizations, and academia. The program focuses on: • Preventing and reducing incidence of occupational cancer • Preventing and reducing incidence of adverse reproductive outcomes related to work • Preventing and reducing incidence of occupational cardiovascular disease (CVD)

What do we do? • Conduct research on occupational cancer on high priority worker populations and exposures and communicate findings.

• Create documents to assist stakeholders in CRC prevention efforts.

• Conduct research on high-priority agents to identify and quantify risk of adverse reproductive health outcomes associated with workplace factors and communicate findings.

• Promote use of CRC research by authoritative organizations such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, National Toxicology Program, International Agency for Research on Cancer, and National Fire Protection Agency.

• Assess the association of workplace factors and exposures with sub-clinical/clinical CVD using a variety of methods.

• Maximize CRC resources by collaborating with external researchers to evaluate occupational risk factors in pre-existing health studies.

• Generated information used by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to support the revised silica standard and a new beryllium standard. • Provided expert consultation on occupational hazards associated with cancer or reproductive effects to the National Toxicology Program; the International Agency for Research on Cancer; an international consortium conducting the International Nuclear Workers Study; and the International Association of Fire Fighters. • Expanded work with the Nurses’ Health Study to assess potential reproductive effects among healthcare workers exposed to antineoplastic drugs and high-level disinfectants.

—— BPA among manufacturing workers, building on currently available information. —— Occupational exposure to flame retardant chemicals. A wide range of chemicals and mixtures are used as flame retardants; reported health effects have included liver and thyroid effects, developmental changes, and neurotoxicity.

• Published an industrywide biomonitoring evaluation of Bisphenol A (BPA) among manufacturing workers, finding that workers had elevated urine concentrations of BPA. • Provided the scientific basis underlying proposed federal legislation to create a national fire fighter cancer registry. This legislation referenced a NIOSH cohort study of nearly 30,000 firefighters. • Published “Current Intelligence Bulletin 68: NIOSH Chemical Carcinogen Policy.”

• Create multimedia training on occupational risks for pregnant women doing lifting tasks. • Publish NIOSH Science Blog on actions employers can take to improve workers’ reproductive outcomes. • Develop and share evidence-based recommendations for firefighters on preventing skin exposure to hazardous chemicals during building fires.

• Publish translation of NIOSH Reproductive Health Topic Page in Spanish. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health

• Provided research and provisional material lifting guidelines that were key components of Number of new associations between workplace exposures and reproductive health clinical guidance statements adopted by the outcomes evaluated by CRC Program research American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine and American College of Ob4 4 stetricians and Gynecologists.

What’s next? • Publish industrywide exposure assessment of:

The Cancer, Reproductive, Cardiovascular and Other Chronic Disease Prevention Program provides leadership in preventing work-related diseases related to many types of cancer, reproductive health, and cardiovascular diseases, as well as occupational neurologic and renal disease. This snapshot shows recent accomplishments and upcoming work.

What have we accomplished? • Published the “NIOSH List of Antineoplastic and Other Hazardous Drugs in Healthcare Settings, 2016.”
