NIOSH Occupational Energy Research Program:

Evidence for the National Academies' Review of the Worker and Public Health Activities Program Administered by the Department of Energy and the Department of Health and Human Services

The Evidence Package was created to provide relevant information to the National Academies for its review of the CDC/NIOSH Occupational Energy Research Program. The document presents a comprehensive overview and history of the OERP, a detailed summary of completed research and communication products, and a rationale and plan for future research. OERP research has an important role in ensuring the well-being of more than 600,000 workers in the U.S. and more than 10 million worldwide. Much work, however, remains to be done in translating heath effects research into impact-driven practice for improving worker and public health. The National Academies’ review of the OERP will help NIOSH set an optimal direction for future efforts to continue research and to move from research to practice in this area.
