Review & Evaluation: National Academies Evaluation

NIOSH understands that external expert review is one of the most valid and accepted methods of evaluating research programs. Consequently, NIOSH requested that the National Academies evaluate NIOSH research programs with respect to their impact, relevance, and future directions. The National Academies was asked to evaluate what NIOSH research programs are producing and to determine the extent to which NIOSH research is responsible for changes in the workplace that reduce the risk of occupational injuries, illnesses, and deaths. This evaluation was undertaken by the National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine in the National Academies.

More information is available at the National Academies Evaluation of NIOSH Research Programs page.
