NIOSH honors researchers for contribution to occupational health and safety

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recognized NIOSH researchers and partners for their significant scientific contributions to occupational safety and health in 2016.

The annual NIOSH Science Awards was presented to honor researchers for excellence in science that informs and supports the prevention of work-related injuries, illnesses, and deaths.

The Alice Hamilton Award recognizes scientific excellence of technical and instructional materials by NIOSH scientists and engineers.

The James P. Keogh Award recognizes outstanding service by an individual in the occupational safety and health field.

The Bullard-Sherwood Research-to-Practice Award recognizes exceptional efforts by NIOSH researchers and partners in applying occupational safety and health research to the prevention of workplace fatalities, illnesses, or injuries.

The Director’s Intramural Award for Extraordinary Science recognizes outstanding collective contributions to science excellence at NIOSH by individual intramural scientists and support staff.

“The annual NIOSH Science Awards provides an opportunity to acknowledge the outstanding contributions NIOSH staff and partners have made to occupational safety and health,” said NIOSH Director John Howard, M.D. “Developing new knowledge to improve the safety and health of our nation’s workers is at the core of what we do and I am proud to honor the hard work and ingenuity that helps NIOSH achieve its mission.”
