The purpose of this NOFO is to support Centers of Excellence for TWH to develop and conduct multidisciplinary research, intervention, outreach and education, and evaluation activities that will advance the overall safety, health, and well-being of the diverse population of workers in our nation. Center structure should take advantage of diverse scientific resources and focus on local, regional, and/or national worker safety and health issues. Centers should place emphasis on the creation and implementation of evidence-based solutions that address evolving challenges and opportunities related to worker safety, health, and well-being. Collaborations with other academic institutions, nonprofit organizations, and other occupational safety and health focused groups are expected.
