New NIOSH Blog Seeks to Expand Communication, Stimulate Discussions

NIOSH has unveiled a new science blog in an effort to further communicate and stimulate discussion on scientific issues related to the institute's research and recommendations.

The blog (www.cdc.gov/niosh/blog) is intended as a new way to help NIOSH fulfill its mission of translating research into practice for preventing work-related injuries, illnesses and deaths. It is designed to provide an expeditious system for partners and stakeholders to present ideas to NIOSH scientists and each other, while engaging in robust scientific discussion with the goal of protecting workers.

"It is increasingly clear that the 'new media' such as blogs are essential ways for expanding NIOSH's communications to reach as broad an audience as possible," said NIOSH Director John Howard, M.D. "We encourage our partners, colleagues, stakeholders and anyone else interested in occupational safety, health and science to visit the new NIOSH Science Blog and contribute any questions and comments they may have."

Each entry in the NIOSH Science Blog will highlight a specific NIOSH scientific publication, study or research area. The inaugural entry on Nov. 5 focuses on the recent NIOSH alert on preventing firefighter fatalities from heart attacks and other cardiovascular events. A link at the end of the blog provides a way for readers to submit comments.
