Abstract
Dr. Linda Rosenstock, Director, NIOSH, began the Workshop by explaining that although NIOSH and OSHA were both created by the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, they have very different and separate mandates. OSHA has regulatory and enforcement responsibilities, while NIOSH conducts research, makes recommendations, and provides training. She went on to explain it was because Alaska had the highest occupational fatality rate of all states for the decade of the 80s that NIOSH responded by opening its only field station in the nation, the NIOSH Alaska Field Station. Finally, she discussed the many benefits of partnering with other agencies and the most notable partnership accomplishment, the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) and its 21 priority areas.
