The California Work-Related Asthma Prevention Program (WRAPP) aims to identify industries, occupations, and exposures that put workers at risk for work-related asthma. By identifying and understanding the risk factors, we can find new ways to help employers and workers prevent work-related asthma.

​​

The Work-Related Asthma Prevention Program:

  • Collects information from doctors, hospitals, and workers' compensation to identify cases
  • Performs telephone interviews to gather more information about cases and workplace risk factors
  • Carries out worksite investigations to identify hazards and make recommendations for prevention
  • Distributes findings, recommendations, and health education materials to workers, employers, and many other audiences
