Intervention Evaluation Contest

Contest for Occupational Injury Intervention Finding Out What Works (or Doesn’t)!

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) sponsored a contest to recognize outstanding evaluations of interventions designed to prevent work injuries. The evaluations may have been any safety intervention, from a simple tool or equipment change at a single worksite to a comprehensive program implemented at multiple sites. Interventions could address training, protective equipment, or policies applied throughout a corporation, industry, state or nationally, such as an OSHA standard.
