We provide comprehensive support to Navy and Marine Corps activities and acquisition programs, including performing health hazard and toxicological assessments for new products or programs, new uses for existing products, as well as procedures and processes. The Navy or Marine Corps sponsor identifies a product, program or process for review and forwards supporting documentation to NMCPHC (Requesting a Health Hazard Assessment) . As a minimum, the HHA report provides an evaluation of the hazards and risks, recommends process changes or alternative chemicals that should be considered, and lists operation-specific personal protective equipment and controls needed to ensure personnel protection.
Examples of HHA services include:
The HHA program is carried out under BUMEDINST 6270.8C and NMCPHCINST 6270.8E. Specific requirements for the HHA process requirements are further defined in internal Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for references, writing and review.
