We're improving the health, safety, wellness and well-being of workers through effectiveness research, collaboration with partner organizations, and dissemination of evidence-based programs. Learn more about us
The Oregon Healthy Workforce Center (OHWC), a NIOSH Center of Excellence in Total Worker Health®, was established in 2011. We are housed within the Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences, a free-standing research institute at OHSU.
Our theme at the OHWC is Intervention Effectiveness, with a focus on intervention effectiveness for occupational safety and well-being, with attention to translating research to practice.
