Title of Priority Project

Strategies and Assessment of Effectiveness of Intervention Techniques, and Techniques in Reducing or Preventing Workplace Injuries and Illnesses.

Brief Description

The National Occupational Research Agenda includes 21 priority research areas. Intervention Effectiveness is one of these areas. Types of intervention research activities desired under this priority research area include (1) systematic evaluation of the effectiveness of interventions which are ready for implementation as well as evaluations of the effectiveness of interventions which have already been implemented. (2) comparative analyses of the effectiveness of alternate options (e.g. cost effectiveness) and (3) evaluation of interventions in any industry sector with emphasis on agriculture, construction, services (especially health care), and mining. Applications are encouraged which partner with industry, labor, or other academic institutions.

Total number of years anticipated: up to three

General idea of funding level

Approximately $350,000 is available in FY 1999 to fund approximately three to five project awards. It is expected that the average award will be $75,000 with a range from $50,000 to $100,000
