Donna Heidel, MS, CIH coordinates the Prevention through Design (PtD) program at CDC/NIOSH. She coordinates research and facilitates the translation to practice that will reduce occupational injuries and illnesses among workers by eliminating hazards and minimizing risk during the design process. She chairs the PtD Council and fosters collaborative partnerships with labor, industry, government, and other stakeholders and coordinates the activities to achieve the five strategic goals identified in the PtD strategic plan. Her current PtD activities include the development of the framework and decision logic to determine occupational exposure bands for chemicals without authoritative OELs, identification of tools to support the inclusion of considerations for workers into engineering design, and the development of guidelines for the safe synthesis of nanoparticles and associated products, using a prevention-through-design approach. Prior to NIOSH, Ms. Heidel gained 20 years' experience in the pharmaceutical industry, first at Merck and Co, Inc. and later at Johnson & Johnson. Ms. Heidel has an M.S. in industrial hygiene from Temple University. She is a board-certified industrial hygienist and an AIHA fellow.
