The American Association of Occupational Health Nurses Inc. (AAOHN) has renewed its alliance with OSHA. Originally signed in 2003 and renewed in 2005, the alliance provides AAOHN members and others, including large and small businesses, with information and guidance about workplace hazard preparedness and security issues, such as workplace violence, musculoskeletal disorders, bloodborne pathogens and personal protective equipment.

"We are committed to working together with OSHA to promote safe work environments that prevent employee illness and injuries," said AAOHN President Richard Kowalski.

Through the alliance, AAOHN and OSHA representatives sit on the editorial boards of six of OSHA’s Safety and Health Topics Web pages such as bloodborne pathogens and needlestick prevention, medical screening and surveillance, occupational health professionals, and tuberculosis. AAOHN also supported and promoted the 2007 North American Occupational Safety and Health Week and OSHA's 2007 Teen Summer Job Safety campaign. OSHA representatives participated in the AAOHN Symposium and Expo in 2006 and 2007.

AAOHN is a 10,000-member professional association dedicated to advancing the health, safety and productivity of domestic and global workforces by providing education, research, public policy and practice resources for occupational and environmental health nurses.
