The article discusses the occupational health goals set by Healthy People 2020 and reports that the goal of 10 percent improvement in factors including overall injury rate, work-related fatalities, and assaults, represent low expectations for progress on the occupational health and safety front. Also highlighted is the difficulty faced by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to establish higher goals according to the Healthy People 2020 criteria.
