Abbott Laboratories is allying with OSHA to advance healthcare safety and health.

The agreement calls for developing information and increasing access to training resources. OSHA and Abbott Laboratories will work with business schools to develop and integrate safety and health presentations and business case study materials into MBA-level and executive education seminars. Also, materials that communicate the business value of comprehensive workplace safety and health programs will be developed for inclusion in business school curricula.

The alliance also provides OSHA and Abbott with the opportunity to work with stakeholders in the nursing home community to develop practical programs and processes for reducing injuries and illnesses.

Abbott Laboratories is a global, broad-based health care company devoted to the discovery, development, manufacture and marketing of pharmaceuticals, nutritionals and medical products, including devices and diagnostics. The company employs more than 70,000 people.
