Happy 50th to NIOSH

NIOSH celebrates 50th Anniversary

This year is the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health’s (NIOSH) 50th anniversary. Since April 28, 1971, NIOSH has funded research, education and resources in occupational safety and health. “Congress passed the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 that created NIOSH “to assure so far as possible every working man and woman in the Nation safe and healthful working conditions.”

Here are some ways to stay connected with NIOSH and celebrate their milestone:

Oregon Healthy Workforce Center (OHWC) is housed at our Institute and is a NIOSH® Total Worker Health Center of ExcellenceTotal Worker Health® is defined as policies, programs, and practices that integrate protection from work-related safety and health hazards with promotion of injury and illness-prevention efforts to advance worker well-being.

On behalf of Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences and OHWC, we wanted to congratulate NIOSH for their dedication and hard work the last five decades of service and its’ evolution to recognize the importance of improving safety, health and well-being in the workplace.
