Using the routine NEISS-Work data, an analysis of firefighters will be performed to determine if any differences can be identified between the telephone interview responder and non-responder groups. The Division of Safety Research (DSR) within NIOSH is conducting this project. DSR has a strong interest in improving surveillance of firefighter injuries and exposures to provide the information necessary for effectively targeting and implementing prevention efforts and, consequently, reducing occupational injuries and exposures to firefighters. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) continues to contribute to this project, as they are responsible for coordinating the collection of all NEISS-Work data and for overseeing the collection of all telephone interview data. CDC requests approval for an estimated 18 annual burden hours with this Extension. There is no cost to respondents other than their time.
