NIOSH Center for Workers’ Compensation Studies (CWCS)

Original article from www.cdc.gov/niosh/

In 2013,the NIOSH Center for Workers’ Compensation Studies (CWCS) was created to organize workers’ compensation data that are already being analyzed by NIOSH researchers in existing programs, such as the Economics ProgramSurveillance Program, and the Center for Motor Vehicle Safety. This is important because coordinated workers’ compensation research has been conducted mostly at large commercial insurers, state-based insurers, or organizations such as the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI), which cannot always widely distribute their research findings.

We are conducting analyses across a wide range of industry sectors, including:

  • Construction
  • Healthcare and social assistance
  • Manufacturing
  • Public safety
  • Services
  • Mining
  • Transportation
  • Warehousing
  • Wholesale and retail trade

The mission of the CWCS is to use workers’ compensation data to prevent and reduce the severity of workplace injuries and illnesses. We will work with public and private partners to maximize the use of their own workers’ compensation data.
