Since its formal inception in 2001, the NIOSH supported Harvard Occupational Injury Prevention Research training Program at the Harvard School of Public Health has successfully focused the efforts of a community of world-class occupational safety and health scientists, practitioners, and students to train the next generation of injury prevention researchers and professionals.

The program is focused on providing interdisciplinary-training for future researchers and professionals with traditional disciplinary backgrounds to expand the breadth and depth of their knowledge within the public health framework.This approach emphasizes prevention through:

Intervening and reducing risks with the development of administrative and engineering controls in the design of workplace environments.

Managing and developing policies and programs to prevent workplace acute and chronic injuries as well as the rehabilitation and return to work of those injured.

Our goal is to produce the next generation of qualified researchers with the multidisciplinary skills and experience necessary to design and conduct studies in order to understand the etiology and prevention of occupational injury.
