Worker health surveillance in New Mexico.
NIOSH 2006 Jan; :1-196
The project funded by The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) in 2002, "Development of Worker Health Surveillance for New Mexico," has made significant steps in the formation of a comprehensive occupational illness and injury surveillance system. During the three years of the capacity building grant, the foundation for a comprehensive occupational health surveillance system has been laid through specific tasks including the enactment of regulations, the establishment of alliances and agreements with data holders and other entities, baseline assessments of occupational injury and illness, the development of a database for housing occupational health data, and the establishment of the New Mexico Occupational Health Registry as the official entity to receive reports of occupational illness and injury.
