Abstract
Fall-prevention research has long been recognized as one of the most important and needed areas of occupational injury prevention research. This paper presents current NIOSH priority strategic goals to reduce fall injuries in the workplace, including the construction, health services, wholesale and retail trade, public safety, and manufacturing industries. These priorities include research on human characteristics and biotechnology-based fall control measures. Targeted research priorities also address areas of surveillance and technology assessment, among others. Although not presented here, detailed "Activity/Output Goals" have also been developed for these strategic goals to guide project planning. Through this presentation, we hope to increase communications among ourselves and with key stakeholders, to more effectively advance a common research agenda, and to facilitate the implementation of research findings to prevent falls in the workplace. The findings and conclusions are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the views of NIOSH or imply the policies of NIOSH.
