Technical Communications at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH): An Internship Report

by Lamborg, Amy Davison

Abstract (Summary)
This report is a case study of a technical communications internship in a government institute devoted to scientific research in occupational safety and health. Descriptions in this report include the structure and goals of the Institute and how my internship corresponded with these goals, the three projects I worked on during the internship, and an in-depth examination of the activities required for converting material from a Dutch database to functional Web pages. The final chapter examines my technical communication activities with respect to several communication models, and briefly describes three specific-purpose communication models (social marketing, elaboration likelihood, and diffusion of innovations) and their use at NIOSH.
