Abstract
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is the Federal agency responsible for conducting research and making recommendations for the prevention of work-related disease and injury. The Institute is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. NIOSH is responsible for conducting research on the full scope of occupational disease and injury ranging from lung disease in miners to carpal tunnel syndrome in computer users. The philosophy of NIOSH is articulated in the Institute's vision statement: Delivering on the Nation's promise: safety and health at work for all people...through research and prevention. In addition to conducting research, NIOSH: investigates potentially hazardous working conditions when requested by employers or employees; makes recommendations and disseminates information on preventing workplace disease, injury, and disability; provides training to occupational safety and health professionals.
