    Traumatic Occupational Injury Research

    The Public Health Approach to traumatic occupational injury research

    Traumatic occupational injury research at NIOSH is conducted within a public health framework. In the injury research strategy developed by the interdisciplinary NORA Traumatic Injury Team, the authors write:

    Toward the goal of setting priorities, developing collaborative efforts, and developing new research methodologies, the many scientific disciplines will apply different models to occupational injury research (e.g., the public health model, the risk management model, the safety sciences model). All of these are variations of the scientific model—an objective, problem-solving process. For this paper, the public health model is used as a framework to discuss occupational injury research and prevention. The elements of this model include:

      A. Identify and prioritize problems (Injury Surveillance);

      B. Quantify and prioritize risk factors (Analytic Injury Research);

      C. Identify existing or develop new strategies to prevent occupational injuries (Prevention and Control);

      D. Implement the most effective injury control measures (Communication/Dissemination/ Technology Transfer); and

      E. Monitor the results of intervention efforts (Evaluation).
    The process is an iterative one requiring continuous monitoring to ensure that strategies implemented actually reduce or eliminate the exposure or outcome as the intervention progresses and do not create unacceptable new risks. There are specific traumatic occupational injury research needs within each of these phases of the public health model.
