Pilot Projects

Through our Pilot Project Program, the Oregon Healthy Workforce Center, has supported external research in the areas of workplace safety and well-being. Until its final run this year, the Program had annually funded up to two pilot projects at $25,000 each for a one-year period.

Proposals to the Pilot Program have aligned with OHWC's theme and goals as a NIOSH Center of Excellence. Specifically, they encompass a Total Worker Health® perspective, addressing occupational health, safety, & personal well-being, and implementing intervention strategies for a healthier and safer workforce and organizational culture. In addition to a strong research design with a significant applied focus, proposals have addressed strategic goals in a NIOSH National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) sector area.

For a description of our recently funded pilot projects, see below.
