Evaluation of the Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) program: phase II.
NIOSH 1996 Nov; :1-62
The Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) program of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) seeks to prevent workplace fatalities by identifying and investigating fatal occupational injuries and disseminating prevention strategies to those who can intervene in similar situations. Publications based on information from fatality investigations identify occupational hazards and prevention measures and are disseminated to persons who can influence work conditions and information availability in related occupations and work settings. This report: (1) describes the dissemination of five recent FACE documents (4 tear sheet Alerts and one monograph); (2) compiles user's assessments of their usefulness; and (3) identifies examples of prevention efforts and other impacts attributable to the documents.
