Inputs: Partners


Partnerships are an integral part of the NIOSH Total Worker Health® (TWH) Program. Input from customers and stakeholder groups, who have inherent knowledge and concern about the safety and health of workers in their sector, helps in setting research priorities.

The NIOSH Total Worker Health® Program collaborates and works closely with a broad spectrum of constituents representing this sector. Our stakeholders and customers represent industry, labor, academia, government agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and professional organizations both domestic and international. These organizations may be research partners, users of our technology and scientific findings, peer reviewers, recipients of research grants and contracts, or sources of equipment, technology, or knowledge for advancing research in this area.
