A directory of agencies involved in the study of occupational trauma in Alaska.
NIOSH 1993 Jan; :1-23
This Directory is the first of two separate but related documents produced by the Alaska Activity (AA) for the study of occupational traumatic injury in Alaska. The completion of the first three of the following five objectives resulted in the publication of this document, while objectives four and five are to be published as a compendium to the Directory. 1) Identify all known agencies operating in the State of Alaska that are involved in the study of occupational trauma. 2) Collect information on the agency, their respective jurisdictions, the contact person, and the basic attributes of any collection process, database, or educational activity. 3) Systematize the information into a directory, publish, and disseminate it. 4) Evaluate the utility of surveillance systems used by agencies (located either within or outside of Alaska) for the study of occupational trauma in Alaska, based upon established CDC guidelines. 5) Produce and publish a compendium that summarizes the evaluation study. It is hoped that researchers working in the areas of occupational safety and health will find the directory a useful source of information. Description of Directory: The directory is divided into three categories according to any mandated jurisdiction (Federal or State). If no jurisdiction exists, then the organization falls within the Non-Government category. The three categories are: 1. Federal Government; 2. Alaska State Government; 3. Non-Government.
