hospitalThe National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is looking for what it calls "innovative" healthcare facilities to help it test the data transmission process of its new Occupational Health Safety Network (OHSN) surveillance system.

The OHSN is a new voluntary and secure electronic occupational safety and health surveillance system that examines non-infectious occupational safety and health issues among healthcare personnel. NIOSH invites all healthcare facilities to incorporate our data elements in preparation for general enrollment in the network, currently scheduled for December 2012.
