How to Access EHP Reports

It is EHP's goal to make its publications available electronically.  Virtually all publications from 1997 onward can be retrieved from this site in electronic format.  Documents are provided in PDF (Portable Document Format) and require either the Adobe Acrobat browser plug-in or the Acrobat Reader software for viewing.  These programs can be downloaded for free from Adobe.

If you wish to receive a copy of an EHP publication which is not available electronically, please send an e-mail to [email protected].
