Research at NIOSH

In April 1996, NIOSH and its partners unveiled the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA), a framework to guide occupational safety and health research into the next decade- not only for NIOSH but for the entire occupational safety and health community. Approximately 500 organizations and individuals outside NIOSH provided input into the development of the Agenda. Before NORA, no national research agenda existed in the field of occupational safety and health, and no research agenda in any field had captured such broad input and consensus. The NORA process resulted in a remarkable consensus about the top 21 research priorities.

NIOSH Research Grant Program

The overall goal of NIOSH is the prevention of illnesses, injuries, and deaths caused by hazards on the job. Recognizing the valuable contributions of extramural scientists to this endeavor, NIOSH sponsors research through a grants program, which complements the Institute's intramural research program. The creativity and special resources available in the scientific community make the grants program an important component in achieving the Nation's goal to have safe jobs and healthy workers.

NIOSH Training and Research Opportunities in Occupational Safety and Health

Through the available training and research programs, NIOSH offers the opportunity to conduct cutting-edge research, and to participate in the discovery, investigation, and prevention of emerging, as well as enduring, occupational health problems. Through these programs, NIOSH offers the opportunity to solve real problems in real workplaces. NIOSH program assignments are available in Anchorage, Atlanta, Cincinnati, Morgantown, and Pittsburgh.
