In 2017, Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences, Oregon OSHA and SAIF Corporation signed the first state-wide Alliance to expand the knowledge and application of Total Worker Health® principles by leveraging the strengths of three state-based organizations. This unique alliance is forging partnerships between Oregon’s state OSHA, Oregon’s not-for-profit, state-chartered workers’ compensation insurance company and an Oregon-based academic research institute.
