The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Small Business Assistance Program works with partners in industry, labor, trade associations, professional organizations, and academia. While the definition of small business is a work in progress, most consider them to have fewer than fifty employees. The program focuses on these areas:

  • Conducting research to better prevent injuries, illnesses, and deaths in small businesses.
  • Increasing awareness and use of effective interventions by small businesses.
