The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the critical role of workplace safety and health – not just in health care but in industries across America. Workers are the backbone of our nation that keep us moving ahead even in the face of unprecedented threats, such as the one we face today. The importance of taking proactive steps to ensure they have the safety equipment and the training they need to perform work safely and remain healthy is clearer than ever. NIOSH is dedicated to providing recommendations that further prevent, protect and safeguard all workers from injuries, illnesses and fatalities.
