A compendium of NIOSH construction research 2002.
Washington, DC: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, DHHS (NIOSH) Publication No. 2003-103, 2003 Feb; :1-120
This Compendium of NIOSH Construction Research for 2002 includes 49 NIOSH intramural and 67 NIOSH-funded extramural construction projects. Projects included in this compendium were selected on the basis of their relevance to construction, and each principal investigator was asked to describe their project in one page and submit a graphic of some sort to illustrate the narrative. The descriptions were then grouped by topic categories. A few explanations and caveats are provided here to assist users of this document. 1. The projects in this compendium have construction as the major focus. Projects that look at the etiology of a certain health effect or which address construction as part of a multi-industry approach may not be included even though they may have relevance for construction. In addition, research targeting the agriculture and mining sectors may address hazards (e.g., hand tools, hearing loss, electrical hazards) and produce solutions (e.g., ventilation of equipment cabs) that can be applied to the construction sector and vice versa. NIOSH mining-related projects are described in A Compendium of NIOSH Mining Research 2002 (DHHS, NIOSH Publication No. 2002-110), which can be downloaded from the NIOSH Web site at <a href="https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/mining/pubs/pubreference/outputid544.htm"target="_blank">https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/mining/pubs/pubreference/outputid544.htm </a>). Interested readers are encouraged to examine both research compendia for synergistic health and safety projects. 2. The one-page format focuses on key items. Projects are included in only one topic category, even though many can be considered as cutting across a number of categories. 3. Space limitations may have resulted in some co-investigators or research partners being omitted. Readers should contact the researchers directly for more information or with any questions.
