This project fulfills the NIOSH mission of disseminating information on how to reduce injury and illness in the workplace, and fulfills r2p goals of translating research into practice for safety and health professionals, employers, and workers through easy-touse recommendations.
The NIOSH mission requires the dissemination of information to reduce injury and illness in the workplace. Information and recommendations about how to reduce injuries and illnesses need to be easily accessible to workers and employers, especially small business owners. Much research shows that these populations prefer and will more readily use material that is in an easy to read format. The documents produced through this project are 2-4 page user-friendly publications that clearly identify hazards and present recommendations for hazard control that are directly applicable to employers and workers in small businesses.
Much NIOSH research with recommendations that are useful to workers has been published in academic journals, which may not be easily accessible to workers or small business owners.
