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.​


We envision a future where all people can be healthy and safe at work.


Our mission is to identify and prevent work-related illnesses, injuries and deaths and to promote health and safety of all Oregon workers. To accomplish this, we:
Collect, analyze and monitor data from a variety of sources to assess the scope of occupational health concerns;

  • Communicate findings;
  • Develop and collaborate to implement effective intervention strategies; and
  • Partner with diverse groups to enable state-wide outreach and action
