Abstract
Problems of occupational safety and a proposed strategy for NIOSH safety research are reviewed. The five interrelated problem areas inhibiting gains in occupational safety are: inadequacies in data collection systems oriented toward isolating accident prevention priorities; lack of data on cost effective safety methods; inappropriate employer and employee attitudes on safety; an undersupply of properly trained occupational safety professionals; and insufficient funding for occupational safety programs. The needs of a national program in occupational safety research and the steps to meet these needs are outlined. The broad strategy developed by the NIOSH Division of Safety Research includes problem identification, problem definition, research, and technology transfer. University occupational safety research programs are cited as a means of augmenting NIOSH safety research efforts. The authors note that NIOSH plans utilize all available modes of technology transfer in order to develop safety awareness among employers and employees and to demonstrate that accident prevention measures are implementable, cost effective, and humanitarian.
