NIOSH Launches New Science Blog
Director John Howard, M.D., recently announced the creation of a new NIOSH Science Blog, which he said is intended to be a tool for sharing NIOSH research and communicating with stakeholders.
The blog, accessible at www.cdc.gov/niosh/blog, contains posts on various issues, such as stress at work, preventing firefighter deaths from cardiovascular events, and truck driver safety and health."
"I hope that the NIOSH Science Blog will become an important channel through which NIOSH research can be seen, read, discussed, understood and used to improve worker safety and health throughout the world," wrote Howard in the announcement. "Through robust scientific discussion with our stakeholders, I also hope that we can sharpen our own thinking about various occupational safety and health issues and learn how best to communicate with all segments of our stakeholder community."
