The State-based Occupational Health Surveillance Clearinghouse is a collection of public health materials produced and shared by state programs*. The materials in the Clearinghouse concentrate on workplace safety and health issues.
The Clearinghouse offers a way for states to increase outreach and distribution of workplace safety and health products for free. It also allows access to unpublished materials produced by the states that address job-related public health issues.
Within the U.S., more than half of states regularly contribute materials. Any state agency or program can contribute to the Clearinghouse, though materials added must relate to occupational safety and health. Products vary, but generally include:
- Annual reports
- Case reports
- Journal articles
- Multi-media (posters, videos, presentations, audio files, etc.)
