Occupational Health Safety Network (OHSN) Town Hall Meeting

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

THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH (NIOSH) invites you to a special town hall meeting scheduled for Thursday September 11 during the AOHP 2014 National Conference. Learn the answers to all of your questions regarding data from 15,000 healthcare personnel injuries that have been collected by the NIOSH Occupational Health Safety Network (OHSN) from more than 100 hospitals nationwide and entered into the first modules of its electronic surveillance system:

  • To whom and where did the injury occur? (standard job category and department)
  • What caused the slips, trips and falls among healthcare personnel?
  • What are the activities which lead to patient handling injuries?
  • What are the contributing factors which lead to violence against healthcare personnel?
  • Are these injuries preventable? What are the available workplace solutions to implement in your facility?
  • What is the latest news on developing needlestick and blood and body fluid exposure 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; and workplace violence. 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 and other stakeholders for this informational meeting.
