About Us

Healthy workplaces. Healthy workers.

We conduct occupational health surveillance and develop strategies to prevent and reduce work-related injuries, illnesses, and deaths through funding from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. Among the many work-related injuries, conditions, and hazards that we focus on, we currently receive funds to generate occupational health indicators and track and prevent fatal work-related injuries.

The Occupational Public Health Program is part of Environmental Public Health in the Center for Prevention and Health Promotion.
