Labor Occupational Health Program

LOHP’s mission is to promote safe, healthy, and just workplaces and build the capacity of workers and worker organizations to take action for improved working conditions.

We are a university-based public health program and we accomplish our mission by:

  • Providing training and developing materials to effectively engage workers and their representatives in advocating for better working conditions

  • Conducting research to evaluate effectiveness of interventions, document impact of health and safety hazards, and identify policy solutions

  • Supporting development of protective policies that integrate public health research and expertise.
