The NIOSH Global Collaborations (GLC) Program seeks to reduce occupational diseases, injuries and deaths in the U.S. and globally through capacity building and information exchange with global collaborators. It also assists the Institute to work towards one of its three strategic goals, “Enhance worker safety and health through global collaborations.” The Program serves as the coordinating focal point for working with partners and organizations on research, technical assistance, information, communication, and education issues.
