Abstract
The Wisconsin cooperative agreement has as its primary goal to effect a measurable reduction in traumatic occupational fatalities. This will be accomplished by strengthening the occupational public health infrastructure of Wisconsin. The resources of occupational safety and health epidemiologic research and public health prevention programs will be integrated at state and local levels. The objectives for the cooperative agreement include: 1. developing a timely, comprehensive, multiple (inter-agency) source state-level surveillance system for identifying and recording basic epidemiologic data on all traumatic occupational fatalities occurring within the state; 2. conducting investigations of selected traumatic occupational fatalities using the NIOSH FACE investigative model; 3. identifying potential risk factors for selected types of traumatic occupational fatalities that will be useful for putting research efforts into priority and for targeting intervention strategies; 4. developing intervention demonstration projects to reduce traumatic occupational injuries and fatalities; and 5. developing and disseminating preventive recommendations to reduce the risk of fatal traumatic injuries within the state.
