preposition at end of sentence

0

Can someone suggest an alternative sentence structure for the passage below? thanks

See example:

the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health aims to develop a consistent description of workplace violence with the research institutions it partners with.

A preposition at the end of a sentence is not always wrong, but in this case it is awkward and should be rewritten. The sentence also suffers from placing a modifying phrase too far from what it modifies. Also, sentences always start with a capitalized word.

 

"The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, with its partner research institutions, aims to develop a consistent description of workplace violence."

Thanks so much! My brain kind of shut down for a few minutes and I was unable to think this one through.
