      Version 4: October 2019

      "The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) studies occupational safety and health through scientific research. The Institute then transforms its research into cost-effective, global work practices. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 established NIOSH and it is now part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. NIOSH works with public and private sectors to make work safer, healthier, and more productive for workers, employers, and the nation. The NIOSH Strategic Plan reports research and service goals for fiscal years 2019-2023. These goals address a broad range of occupational health and safety hazards, affecting an ever-changing workforce. Jobs in the U.S. economy continue to shift from manufacturing to services. Longer hours, compressed workweeks, an aging workforce, reduced job security, and part-time and temporary work have also changed the workforce. These changes represents a major challenge for NIOSH as it manages limited resources to address its research portfolio priorities. The NIOSH Strategic Plan introduces strategic, intermediate, and activity goals that guide occupational health and safety research priorities and service work. NIOSH's unique portfolio of research programs includes sector, cross-sector, and core and specialty research programs. These programs perform research that covers a wide range of activities, from basic to applied research. Service work covers non-research work that supports NIOSH's mission or fulfills a legislative mandate. Service work can also support research work within NIOSH and outside with external partners. For example, the Surveillance Program provides data and analysis as a service to both NIOSH's programs and to external partners, while the Health Hazard Evaluation Program provides an external service. NIOSH awards funding priority to outside researchers conducting extramural projects that address the research goals identified in the NIOSH Strategic Plan. NIOSH will also lead new intramural projects to address the goals stated within this plan. NIOSH recognizes that new issues may emerge or become more important during the five-year plan. Goals may be retired because they have been achieved. Priorities may shift in response to changing conditions. NIOSH will add or remove issues based on current or anticipated burden, need, and impact and allocate resources to address these changes. The next section explains how NIOSH develops and organizes its research goals and the section after that focuses on how NIOSH develops and organizes service goals." - NIOSHTIC-2
