Occupational Injury and Illness (OII) Surveillance and Prevention
In 1992, the Section of Epidemiology established the Occupational Injury Prevention Program to monitor traumatic occupational injuries in Alaska and disseminates prevention recommendations. The program administered the state-based Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation (FACE) project under a contractual agreement with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Alaska Pacific Regional Office. In addition to the FACE project, OII Surveillance and Prevention collects occupational injury and illness morbidity and mortality information from multiple sources; analyzes the data to generate epidemiology bulletins, reports, and visual graphic presentations; and provides recommendations for prevention.
