Who did the work? (and who paid for it?)

The materials on this website are derived from a two-day workshop developed by the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences in the University of Washington's School of Public Health in partnership with the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I).  Individuals involved included Dr. Michael Silverstein, Steve Hecker, Kate Stewart, Ken Scott, Sharon Perkins, Bruce Coulter, Rick Goggins, Lena Wang, Melissa Symon and an advisory board from private industry and organized labor.  This initial stage of the workshop was supported by a Safety and Health Improvement Project Grant from L&I.

The original workshop was tailored to the healthcare sector and the wholesale and retail trade sector by the University of Washington (Mr. Hecker) and the Colorado School of Public Health (Mr. Scott & Dr. Brian Williams) with help from Dr. Kate McPhaul and Dr. Mazen El Ghaziri.  The Johns Hopkins University (Mary Doyle & Dr. Jackie Agnew) and the University of Maryland (Dr. Jane Lipscomb) hosted a pilot test of the healthcare materials.  This stage of the project was supported by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

The digital stories were developed during a digital storytelling workshop facilitated by the Center for Digital Storytelling, including Daniel Weinshenker, Mary Ann McNair and Holly McClelland.  The Center for Digital Storytelling did additional video editing work for the project.  These stories were supported by the Mountain & Plains Education and Research Center, the Northwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety and NIOSH.
