The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) presented annual awards on April 28, 2005, to recognize the scientific excellence of technical and instructional materials by NIOSH scientists and engineers, to honor exceptional service by an individual in the occupational safety and health field, and to highlight outstanding efforts by NIOSH scientists and their partners in applying occupational safety and health research to preventing workplace fatalities, illnesses or injuries.
The awards are:
"This year's selections for the Alice Hamilton Award again demonstrate that NIOSH and its partners are leading world-class scientific research into the prevention of work-related injuries, illnesses, and deaths," said NIOSH Director John Howard, M.D. "And this year, with the new Bullard-Sherwood Award, we also recognize the excellence of efforts that move the products of such research into everyday application in the workplace."
Dr. Howard added, "Such efforts are key for stimulating new innovations that may have as dramatic and positive an impact on the 21st Century workplace as the hard hat and the sampling pump had on the 20th Century workplace."
