New Grant: Job Exposure Matrix

Developing a general population job exposure matrix for studies of work-related MSD

The overall goal of this study is to create and validate improved methods for workplace physical exposures using a Job Exposure Matrix (JEM). Use of JEM can provide the ability to add detailed work exposure data to many general population data sets that include health outcomes and job titles, but no other work exposure data. This capability will spur additional studies of important health outcomes related to workplace physical exposures. (NIOSH/CDC 1R01 OH011076-01A1, PI: Evanoff)
