This project provides for the development and pilot testing of new research project concepts, partnerships with industry and labor to support new research efforts, and dissemination of findings from the Division of Safety Research's analytic epidemiology program. This project also provides statistical consultation support to the AFEB and other DSR branches.
This project provides for the planning and pilot testing of risk factor and intervention evaluation research within the Analysis and Field Evaluations Branch. This work includes developing new project concepts, meeting with partners in industry and labor to develop program areas and advancing the current level of epidemiologic and statistical research in the field of occupational injury. Through analyses of various data and projects, sophisticated epidemiologic and statistical methods will be applied to assess the impact of occupational injury prevention strategies. The goal of this project is to develop emerging projects. Projects will be developed through the protocol development stage and at that point the project may be moved to a separate project account and a new project plan developed. Resulting publications will serve to make important advances to various applied and methodological fields in occupational injury research.
This project provides a forum for ongoing outreach to occupational safety and health partners. This project also supports the development of state-of-the-art epidemiologic and statistical methods for occupational injury research. Strategic direction for occupational injury risk factor research as well as intervention evaluation research is developed under the auspices of this project.
