The Illinois Occupational Surveillance Program was established to prevent occupational illnesses and injuries in Illinois, with a primary focus on under-served worker populations. The program is funded by a grant from The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Through this expanded project, we aim to improve occupational surveillance and public health practice in Illinois by strategically linking surveillance data, work practices and enforcement activities through a network of occupational health stakeholders. These activities are integral to understanding, highlighting, and proactively preventing injuries and illnesses caused by chronic and emerging hazards at work. While the goal of our surveillance program is to improve health and safety across the entire workforce, we continue to focus on issues affecting the most vulnerable workers in Illinois and underserved populations. The current funding period is 2021-2026. View sponsor listing
