As Olympic fever takes hold, we would like to take the opportunity to highlight research from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) that relates directly or indirectly to the athletes or their events. NIOSH has the responsibility of conducting research and making recommendations to prevent work-related injuries and illnesses. Although Olympic competition differs from employment (defined as work performed for hire or pay), the contests often involve stresses and hazards similar to those that working men and women can encounter on the job. As we salute America’s world-class champions, we and our diverse partners have the opportunity to remind the public of the work we do to make everyday work safe for all workers.
