Partnerships are cornerstone to NIOSH and the Office for Total Worker HealthTM. Together, NIOSH and partners support U.S. economic strength and growth by moving research into practice through concrete and practical solutions, recommendations, and interventions for the building of a safe, healthy, and capable workforce. Our partners represent labor, industry, academia, government agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and professional organizations both domestic and international. Input from our partners and stakeholders helps in setting research priorities, conducting research, implementing interventions, and translating scientific knowledge.
