OHSN Town Hall Meeting

THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH (NIOSH) invites you to a special town hall meeting scheduled for 1:20 pm on Thursday, September 8 during the AOHP 2016 National Conference. Learn the answers to all of your questions regarding data from 42,000 healthcare personnel injuries that have been collected by the NIOSH Occupational Health Safety Network (OHSN). More than 120 hospitals nationwide have entered data into the modules of this electronic surveillance system to track injuries, empower prevention and monitor impact:

•             To whom and where did the injury occur? (standard job category and department)

•             What caused the slips, trips and falls, patient handling and movement injuries, and workplace violence among healthcare personnel?

•              Are these injuries preventable? What are the available workplace solutions to implement in your facility?

•               How can my healthcare system or facility join OHSN and utilize the new modules?


With input from AOHP and other stakeholders, NIOSH has developed the first modules of this free, secure, electronic surveillance system, which uses existing data to eliminate the need for double data entry. The current modules focus on: slips, trips and falls; musculoskeletal disorders related to patient handling; workplace violence; needlesticks; and blood and body fluid exposures. Gain valuable insight on uploading your existing data, viewing the benchmarking capabilities and using the output graphs 24/7 at your desk. Come join us for this informational meeting.
