The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Meeting

(NIOSH) invites you to participate in the meetings at the AOHP 2011 National Conference. NIOSH will update participants on its project to enhance the healthcare personnel health and safety component of the Occupational Health Safety Network (OHSN). AOHP recently helped NIOSH with assessing types of software used for occupational health tracking among hospitals. NIOSH will be sharing the results from the questionnaire and providing a status update on the development of the proposed healthcare personnel safety module(s) for OHSN. The OHSN healthcare personnel and safety module collects data to help healthcare facilities monitor the health of their employees to identify and address problems.
