Improving the Health and Safety of Transit Workers

Improving the Health and Safety of Transit Workers

OUR WORK

Projects

Market: Health, Transportation & Aerospace

Start Year: 2017

Role: Sub

Client: Transportation Research Board of the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine

Services Provided: Benefit—Cost Analysis, Data Collection, Econometrics, Literature Review, Programming & Planning Evaluation

Econometrica is conducting a project that analyzes the health and safety of transit workers and the costs associated with their health and safety for the Transportation Research Board of the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Econometrica will research cost estimates associated with health conditions and risks experienced by transit workers. Econometrica will conduct cost–benefit analyses of health promotion and protection programs at transit agencies. The analyses will measure the programs’ benefits, including savings from reduced absenteeism, turnover, and workers’ compensation payments, against their costs. These analyses will help identify programs that produce positive bottom-line effects for the fiscal health of transit agencies and the health of transit workers.

Review and Critique of CPSC Table Saw Standard ANPRM Injury and Societal Cost Estimates

Review and Critique of CPSC Table Saw Standard ANPRM Injury and Societal Cost Estimates

OUR WORK

Projects

Market: Litigation

Start Year: 2011

Role: Prime

Services Provided: Data Collection, Econometrics, Literature Review

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) in 2010 that solicited input on possible regulatory approaches to reducing the number of blade contact injuries associated with consumer use of table saws. Econometrica reviewed and critiqued the CPSC estimates of annual injuries and social costs associated with these injuries. Based on an extensive analysis of the CPSC injury estimation and cost methodologies, Econometrica developed alternative estimates of injuries and injury costs that were used to support the comments the Power Tool Institute submitted in response to the ANPRM.
