In 2018, the enduring National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) vision of “Safer, Healthier Workers” held true as innovative research helped improve occupational safety and health across industries. Whether addressing the resurgence of advanced black lung disease, the opioid epidemic and first-responder safety, or cancer among fire fighters, NIOSH helped lead the nation’s efforts to protect the safety and health of workers.
Throughout the year, the institute’s communication and research products reflected these efforts in a robust research to practice (r2p) program. These efforts involve intramural and extramural scientists, communication and program staff, and external partners collaborating to translate research findings into practical steps that improve workplace safety and health and protect workers. In 2018, these dedicated professionals contributed to both the scientific and general literature, in the form of journal articles, books and book chapters, fact sheets, brochures, conference proceedings, and abstracts. To bring the research directly to the workplace, NIOSH also developed hands-on products such as smartphone applications and other software programs, transferring research findings into actionable solutions. In the field, NIOSH investigations led to many recommendations for improving workplace safety in the form of control technology reports, fatality assessment and control evaluations, fire fighter fatality investigation and prevention reports, and health hazard evaluations.
