NIOSH Prevention Through Design Workshop at ASU

We want to encourage you to attend the first NIOSH-funded Prevention through Design (PtD) workshop, which will be hosted on March 11 between 8 am and 3:30 pm in Tempe, Arizona. The workshop is the first step within a 5-year PtD Initiative -NIOSH award #1 R13OH011707-01-00. The theme of the first workshop is “CURRENT AND FUTURE STATE-OF-THE-ART ON RESEARCH, PRACTICE, & EDUCATION” -see

With a roster of exceptional keynote speakers, the workshop will identify, exchange, and leverage experiences and expertise on PtD research, practice, and education efforts among engineering, design, contractor, client and owner organizations, insurers, US colleges and universities, and agencies. Workshops participants will actively engage in the assessment and comparison between outstanding and poor implementation and education cases. With subject matter expert (SME) feedback, a baseline on the current PtD state-of-the-art will be established. Past, current, and potential PtD research efforts will be discussed. High payoff research topics will be characterized. Synergistic and collaborative opportunities will be sought among SMEs, researchers, and academics. The detailed agenda will be announced shortly. The workshop flyer is attached to this email.

The PtD workshop becomes an excellent opportunity for attendees to contribute to the advancement of PtD and interact with SMEs and officers at multiple agencies. Representatives of NIOSH, CPWR, ASSP, ASCE, ISSS, and NAC are expected to attend the workshop. PDHs will be offered.
