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
