  • Description:
    Given the rapidly evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and response, NIOSH has developed a COVID-19 research agenda to address occupational health research gaps in the context of the ongoing response. This research agenda is a high-level framework for planning and prioritizing COVID-19 research recommended, conducted, or supported by NIOSH. In March 2020, Disaster Science Response Research (DSRR) Program leadership identified nine critical topic areas (CTAs) based on emerging worker safety and health issues related to the response. The DSRR COVID-19 research team, consisting of NIOSH subject matter experts from each topic area formed to conduct a rapid review of the literature. The team continues to evaluate new literature as it becomes available and will continue to revise and refine the NIOSH COVID-19 research agenda. The CTAs addressed in the science agenda include: Economics; Engineering Controls; Epidemiology/Surveillance; Mental Health; Occupational Environmental/Exposure Assessment; Occupational Violence; Personal Protective Equipment; Transmission/Occupational Health; Zoonosis.
