Creating workplaces where we all watch out for each other


Special issue of Journal of Safety Research highlights injury research symposium


Itasca, IL — The Journal of Safety Research is offering free access – through February – to a special issue featuring select papers from the National Occupational Injury Research Symposium.

NIOSH calls the symposium “the only national forum focused on occupational acute traumatic injury research.”

This issue of the journal, a joint publication of the National Safety Council and Elsevier, highlights the 2022 NOIRS, which was themed “Preventing Workplace Injuries in a Changing World.”

The issue features articles that cover a wide variety of methods, data sources and worker populations. The articles also address leading and emerging causes and contributions to work-related injuries in many industries and occupations.

Some examples include robotics in agriculture and the work to improve knowledge of workplace safety implications of emerging ag technologies, how occupational injury research might be improved, and insufficient racial/ethnic diversity of students and faculty in occupational safety and health programs.

“The intent of this issue is to highlight the breadth of high-quality presentations at NOIRS, and to make them available to those who did not participate in the conference,” guest editor Dawn N. Castillo writes. “We hope the articles are useful for research and practice, and (for) thinking toward the future.”
