APA Urges Trump to Put Money Behind Opioid Declaration


Mr. Trump's declaring the opioid epidemic a national health emergency is a critical first step, but it does not address the urgent need for more federal funds to fight this crisis, according to Arthur C. Evans, Jr., PhD, CEO of the American Psychological Association (APA).

National Protect Your Hearing Month - Time to Fill the "know-do" Gap


When it comes to health, a large gap often exists between what we know and what we still do. Hearing loss prevention is no exception. NIOSH researchers have focused on narrowing this "know-do" gap by improving communication and dissemination efforts with safety and health professionals and the public.

Maryland Agency Will Deploy Smart Traffic Signals


The Maryland State Highway Administration is investing $50.3 million to deploy cutting-edge Smart Traffic Signals that will improve traffic operation and ease congestion for approximately 700,000 drivers per day on 14 major corridors across the state, Gov. Larry Hogan announced.

Study Looks at Disparities in Cancer Screening Among Worker Groups


Workers in smaller organizations and in certain industries are screened for cancer less frequently than other groups, according to a recent study from the American Cancer Society. Reviewing three years of National Health Interview Survey data (2010, 2013 and 2015), researchers tracked respondents' screening for colorectal, breast and cervical cancer and noted their employment characteristics.

Five Ways to Eat Healthier


In anticipation of the upcoming holiday season, the American Heart Association (AHA) is kicking off a month-long campaign to encourage people to make healthier choices. The AHA has designated November as Eat Smart Month in an effort to publicize eating healthier at upcoming parties and gatherings.

Firefighters Exposed to Carcinogens Through the Skin


Firefighters face many known hazards on the job, but one area that hasn't been well researched is how their skin's exposure to hazardous chemicals might increase their risk of cancer. It has long been known that firefighters have higher rates of several types of cancer than people in the general population.

Sharpening Your Social Skills in the Smartphone Age


Like other skills, the less we use our interpersonal social skills, the more they'll weaken. For some professions, that's no big deal, but for safety and health professionals, who have to encourage, discipline and train, it's vital that we keep them sharpened.

Desk job? Get Up and Move Every Half an Hour !


According to a new study, sitting for long periods of time at a single stretch is linked to early death. The study explored the effects of sitting versus moving around and found that it is not only the amount of time spent sitting but also the way in which the total time spent sitting is accumulated throughout the day that counts to affect lifespan detrimentally.

Keeping Older Drivers Safe


Older drivers bring knowledge and experience to the workplace. By 2020, 25 percent of workers in the United States will be 55 or older. But this group is not without risk. According to NIOSH, motor vehicle crashes account for 32 percent of all work-related deaths among workers 55 or older.
