Abstract
Engineering research provides the basic methods for developing innovative tools, methods and practices for occupational injury control. Determining the best methods to translate engineering research results into industrial practice is a key element of effective occupational injury prevention. Through NIOSH's Research to Practice (r2p) initiative, engineers have increased their range of research and development activities and now routinely consider methods to move outcomes toward adoption as accepted industrial practice. This article provides four examples of the r2p process to demonstrate the value of joint efforts among SH&E professionals, industry partners and government.
