PREVENTION THROUGH DESIGN
Partnerships are integral to the NIOSH Program for the Prevention through Design Cross-Sector and are the best means of achieving successful outcomes. Input from customers and stakeholder groups, which have inherent knowledge and concern about the health and safety of workers in the sector, helps in setting research priorities. Collaborative research with our partners may include in-kind contributions which help to leverage NIOSH research dollars. Partners also add expertise or specialized experience to the research team, which benefits the research, analysis, interpretation, and communication of the results.
NIOSH is currently partnering with many organizations representing industry, labor, government and others to advance health and safety research in the Prevention through Design Cross-Sector.
Current partners include:
- American Industrial Hygiene Association
- American Society of Safety Engineers
- Association of Equipment Manufacturers
- Center for Construction Research and Training
- Kaiser Permanente
- Liberty Mutual
- National Safety Council
- Occupational Safety and Health Administration
- ORC Worldwide™
- Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering
Other partners are welcome to join. We invite partnerships in advancing the NIOSH research that will lead to reductions in occupational illnesses and injuries in the HCSA sector.
The NIOSH PtD coordinator collaborates and works closely with a broad spectrum of constituents representing this sector. Our stakeholders and customers represent industry, labor, academia, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and professional organizations both domestic and international. These organizations may be research partners, as described in the previous section. They may also be users of our technology and scientific findings, peer reviewers, recipients of research grants and contracts, or sources of equipment, technology, or knowledge for advancing research in this sector.
