The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Manufacturing Program works with partners in industry, labor, trade associations, professional organizations, and academia. The program focuses on these areas among manufacturing workers:

  • Preventing injuries and fatalities from contact with objects and equipment.
  • Preventing work-related illnesses such as musculoskeletal disorders and respiratory disease.
  • Reducing exposure to occupational safety and health hazards.
  • Evaluating new and emerging technologies, both for potential risks to workers and for ways these technologies might protect workers.
