To help prevent and reduce the severity of work-related injuries, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has launched the Center for Workers' Compensation Studies. The center will analyze trends in work-related injuries and illnesses and will coordinate with other organizations to integrate workers' compensation data with other health-related data.
"This is important because coordinated workers compensation research has been conducted mostly at large commercial insurers, state-based insurers, or industry organizations, which have not always distributed their data or research findings widely," NIOSH said in its June newsletter announcing the center.
