Traumatic Injury Research at NIOSH: Reviews of Research Programs of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
barriers to the adoption of safety measures by small businesses, and the incentives and resources needed to overcome these barriers.
Surveillance. The success of the TI Research Program depends on a robust surveillance system. As indicated in Chapter 2 and as will be discussed in Chapter 4, the committee believes that NIOSH would benefit from an overall strategy regarding surveillance research and implementation. Improving the surveillance system and surveillance research is of sufficient importance to warrant inclusion as a separate strategic goal for the TI Research Program.
As part of its evaluation, the committee sought the input of stakeholders on the relevance and impact of the TI Research Program’s current research portfolio. Responses to this request included several suggestions for additional research. A summary of these suggestions, along with an outline of the stakeholder comment request process, can be found in Appendix B of this report.
