NIOSH supports Appalachian research on how to keep workers safe on the job

BOONE, N.C. — A four-year pilot study conducted by two professors in Appalachian State University’s Dr. Wiley F. Smith Department of Psychology, in collaboration with the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), may lead to new strategies to keep workers safe in the workplace.

The project, titled “Development and Demonstrations of Data Analytics Strategies for Evaluating Organizational Safety Performance,” explores how to keep workers safe by examining the use of Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) data in analytics, which could allow employers to make more informed, evidence-based decisions regarding their employees’ health and safety.
