NIOSH Seeks OSH Presenters for October '08 Injury Research Symposium

The fourth National Occupational Injury Research Symposium, NOIRS 2008, will be held Oct. 21-23 in Pittsburgh. NOIRS serves as a national forum for the presentation of the latest findings and methods in occupational injury research.

The symposium will cover topics that cut across all industries and include, but are not limited to, surveillance of fatal and non-fatal injuries, intervention evaluation, prevention through design, engineering/technology, research to practice, workplace violence, motor vehicle safety, fall prevention research, machines and industrial vehicle safety, high risk and vulnerable workers, emergency response, and the economics of injury prevention. Researchers interested in presenting at the symposium are invited to submit abstracts of 300 words or less by March 3, 2008.

To recognize excellence in the field of evaluation studies, NOIRS 2008 is holding an international contest to recognize outstanding evaluation studies of interventions designed to prevent work-related injuries. Winners will receive travel assistance, an award plaque, and the opportunity to share evaluation research experiences in a special session of the Symposium.
