BOHSI is conducting a seminar at the NIOSH office in Pittsburg, PA. This is part of a series of interactions with NIOSH, who asked BOHSI to conduct expert reviews of NIOSH's scientific questions and programs critical to its mission. The topics to be covered will be the conduct and application of mixed methods research, and cognitive skills training for hazard recognition and risk perception. The seminar will be open to NIOSH staff and others involved in NIOSH's mine safety program.
This report examines the culture of safety in research institutions and makes recommendations for university leadership, laboratory researcher, and environmental health and safety professionals to support safety as a core value of their institutions. The report discusses ways to fulfill that commitment through prioritizing funding for safety equipment and training, as well as making safety an ongoing operational priority.
