Identifying Significant Emerging Traumatic Injury Research Areas

NIOSH uses multiple on-going surveillance systems to identify significant emerging needs or trends associated with work-related traumatic injuries. These surveillance systems monitor fatal and nonfatal injury trends so that a proactive research response can be formulated to appropriately utilize limited resources. NIOSH conducts fatality investigations of selected work-related deaths through the Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluations (FACE) program and also funds a State-based FACE program. These surveillance programs play a critical role in identifying significant emerging research areas that are especially relevant to the NIOSH traumatic injury research mission.
