The first NIOSH-Arizona State University Prevention thru Design (PtD) workshop will be held on March 11th, 2020 in Tempe, AZ. The workshop aims to identify, exchange, and leverage experiences and expertise on PtD research, practice, and education efforts at engineering, design, contractor, client and owner organizations, insurers, US colleges and universities, and agencies.
Workshop participants will actively engage in the assessment and comparison between outstanding and poor implementation and education cases. With subject matter expert (SME) feedback, a baseline on the current PtD state-of-the-art will be established. Past, current, and potential PtD research efforts will be discussed. High payoff research topics will be characterized. Synergistic and collaborative opportunities will be sought among SMEs, researchers, and academics.
