NIOSH - National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health

Office of Extramural Programs


The overall goal of NIOSH is the prevention of illnesses, injuries, and deaths caused by hazards on the job. Recognizing the valuable contributions of extramural scientists and educators to this endeavor, NIOSH sponsors research and training through its extramural programs, which complement the Institute's intramural programs. The creativity and special resources available in the extramural community make these programs an important component in achieving a National goal to have safe jobs and healthy workers.
