Track: Public Health
Authors: Christopher Bell
Managing and preventing work-related injuries (WRI) on an urban campus accommodating employees, students, and volunteers poses a number of challenges. An online surveillance and decision support system was developed based on the ESRI ArcGIS 10.2 to visualize and track WRI data. By conducting analyses of WRI data using ArcGIS, University of Illinois is able to maintain an awareness of longitudinal injury trends in order to identify solutions for improved surveillance monitoring and intervention.
