The UMass Lowell Safe Home Care Program (grant number R01OH008229) has been funded since 2004 by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The earliest research focused on sharps injuries and other blood exposures in home healthcare and expanded in 2010 to investigate a broad range of occupational hazards and good practices. More recently (in 2014), NIOSH funded Safe Home Care to develop scientific evidence to guide the home care industry on effective and safe cleaning & disinfection products and practices. The Research Team partners with home care industry stakeholders, such as private home care agencies, home care industry associations, labor unions, and government agencies.
