Inputs: Partners

Partnerships

Partnerships are integral part of the NIOSH Oil and Gas Extraction Safety and Health Program. Input from customer and stakeholder groups, who have inherent knowledge and concern about the safety and health of workers in the industry, helps in setting research priorities. Collaboration with our partners may include in-kind contributions that help to leverage NIOSH research dollars or expertise or specialized experience to the a research team. While not an exhaustive list, the examples below are provided to help portray the value and variety of these partnerships. For information about partnering with the NIOSH Oil and Gas Extraction Safety and Health Program, contact the Oil and Gas Extraction Coordinator.
