B013 NIOSH Occupational Health Safety Network: Current Trends, Upcoming Exposure Module (Intermediate)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Topic Overview:

The NIOSH Occupational Health Safety Network (OHSN) deployed in summer 2013. This is a novel electronic surveillance system that allows benchmarking of occupational injury/illness rates and data analysis across an entire industry, starting with the healthcare sector. The first three OHSN modules focus on common events that can lead to injuries or musculoskeletal disorders among healthcare personnel: patient handling and working in awkward postures; slips, trips and falls; and workplace violence. Participants will learn about data collection and observed trends over the past year, and lessons learned in this process. The session will also introduce the newest OHSN module focused on exposures, including both sharps injuries and blood/body fluid exposures.



  1. Identify observed trends in injury rates from aggregate OHSN data.
  2. Explain how to join and participate in OHSN.
  3. Describe how to use reports and prevention resources in OHSN.
  4. Review the new Exposure Module.
