NIOSH has launched the Safe, Skilled, Ready Workforce Initiative, with Director Dr. John Howard saying the goal is to ensure the 21st century workforce is ready for the global economy's challenges and able to prevent injuries and illnesses. The initiative promotes basic skills and what the agency calls healthy work.

It will build on past skills training efforts by NIOSH, including the NIOSH Youth@Work-Talking Safety curriculum, and will promote core competencies. The new initiative includes worksite wellness and injury prevention programs.
