    • Description:
      "What are our priorities? The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Services Program works with partners in industry, labor, trade associations, professional organizations, and academia to prevent work-related injuries, illnesses and fatalities among the nation's service workers. Service workers are in highly diverse industries that include education, restaurants, hotels, personal services, recreation, finance, real estate, government, and administration. The program focuses on these areas: 1. Reducing hearing loss and exposure to hazardous noise in priority sub-sectors; 2. Reducing musculoskeletal disorders in priority subsectors; 3. Reducing falls in priority sub-sectors; and 4. Improving safety and health among contingent workers and workers in non-standard workarrangements (such as temporary agency, contract, and "gig" arrangements). What do we do? 1. Conduct research to identify the causes and conditions of work-related injury and illness among Services sector workers. 2. Develop and test interventions to reduce work-related injury and illness in the Services sector. 3. Share with employers, employees and other interested parties the findings of Services sector Health Hazard Evaluation (HHE) field investigations of potential workplace hazards and promote the adoption of these findings. 4. Conduct research and produce guidance documents that address the needs of contingent workers. 5. Incorporate questions of employment type into national surveys to better understand the exposure and health issues of Services sector workers. 6. Share information about model health and safety programs with both temporary employment companies and host employers to promote workplace safety and health." - NIOSHTIC-2 NIOSHTIC no. 20052193
