The Department of Consumer and Business Services (DCBS) Oregon OSHA, the Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), and SAIF recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to improve Oregon worker safety, health and wellbeing. To that end, Oregon OSHA, Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences, and SAIF have formed an Alliance to expand the knowledge and application of Total Worker Health® principles by leveraging the strengths of each organization.
The Alliance collaboration will provide expertise and guidance, along with training and education that will help protect the occupational health, safety and well-being of workers, particularly by reducing and preventing exposure to hazards and addressing issues. In addition, the collaboration will provide knowledge and skills for workers to help in understanding their rights and the responsibilities of employers.
