OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH SAFETY NETWORK (OHSN)
OHSN is a voluntary and secure electronic occupational safety and health surveillance system developed by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). OHSN currently focuses on occupational safety and health issues in the Healthcare Sector, though it may expand to other industry sectors in the future. The first three modules address traumatic injury risks among healthcare personnel. With OHSN, healthcare facilities can submit the occupational health data they already collect to track their rates and to benchmark against other OHSN participants.
Purpose of OHSN: Provide tools for healthcare facilities to analyze existing injury and illness data and to benchmark against other OHSN participants; provide resources to target injury prevention efforts.
