Traumatic Injury Prevention Program
The Traumatic Injury Prevention Program aims to reduce and prevent work-related injury and death, across all industries, due to acute trauma or violence. To do this, we work closely with partners from industry, labor, trade associations, professional organizations, other government agencies, and academia. Through our partnerships and research efforts, we are able to address the human and economic burden imposed by the leading causes of work-related traumatic injuries, especially among high risk jobs and vulnerable worker groups.
