Two-in-five of all workplace injuries occur among workers the first year on the job. In FY 99 EID initiated several new worker interventions to help reduce this statistic, these include: (1) incorporating OSH criteria as part of the National Skill Standards Board (NSSB); (2) developing model OSH curricula for secondary vocational education programs; (3) funding three cooperative agreements (in New England and two locations in California) to establish community-based model interventions to increase awareness of OSH-issues related to young workers. Working with NIOSH personnel from across the Institute, EID contributed to the NSSB effort by helping formulate the "Standard for Standards" document; the definition of a "High-Performance Workplace;" and the identification of six Manufacturing Skill Standard Concentrations, Critical Work Functions, Key Activities and their respective Performance Indicators. The NIOSH Electrical Safety Curriculum is be tested for effectiveness in a controlled study at 52 secondary schools nationwide. Receipt of OMB-clearance for a research study of training intervention effectiveness for this project was a first for EID. The study should be completed in FY00.
