Center work should consider the NIOSH strategic plan and NORA construction research objectives.

Center structure should take advantage of diverse scientific resources and focus on national worker safety and health issues.

Centers should emphasize the creation and implementation of evidence-based solutions that address important construction industry safety and health problems.

Collaborations with other academic institutions, nonprofit organizations, and other occupational safety and health-focused groups are expected.

Applicants must concisely describe the occupational health burden of important safety and health issues in the construction industry and discuss how focused research and outreach activities will help alleviate the burden and reduce numbers.

Applicants should also clearly articulate the anticipated impacts of the Center’s proposed work, both during the project period and beyond.
