Outputs and Transfer - Research Goal 1.9:
Develop a core curriculum in occupational safety and health for high school and post secondary students that includes a module on hearing loss prevention

The national curriculum is targeted for publication by January 2006. It will be available electronically and in print from NIOSH and interested partners. In partnership with the NHCA, activity kits to accompany the “Dangerous Decibels” module will be available to teachers upon request. A working group of project advisors will continue collaborations to ensure widespread dissemination, adoption, and use of the materials. That group includes OSHA, state departments of education, career tech associations such as SkillsU.S.A, academia, community groups, hearing health trade associations, hearing health professional associations, and NIOSH.

Outputs related to this nationwide OSH curriculum effort are identified in the supporting evidence section of this chapter.
