Background/History of the Laboratory:

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) was established to promote safe working conditions by providing research, information, education, and training in the field of occupational safety and health. NIOSH provides national and world leadership to prevent work-related illness, injury, disability, and death by gathering and conducting scientific research, then translating this knowledge into products and services. NIOSH professionals are experts in a wide range of disciplines, including epidemiology, medicine, industrial hygiene, safety, psychology, engineering, chemistry, and statistics. NIOSH's technologies vary from discovery and early stage inventions to commercially-ready products. There are hundreds of partnering opportunities available to domestic and international corporations through the CRADA process.

Mission of the Laboratory:

NIOSH objectives include: conduct research to reduce work-related illnesses and injuries; promote safe and healthy workplaces through interventions, recommendations and capacity building; and enhance global workplace safety and health through international collaborations.
