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 (formerly CROET), a free-standing research institute at OHSU.

Our theme at the OHWC is Intervention Effectiveness, with a focus on:

  • team-based and technology-based interventions for occupational safety and well-being, with attention to translating research to practice
  • improved social support and reduced job stress, which will in turn produce organizational enhancement, healthier lifestyle choices, safer work practices, and better psychological and physical health
