The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is the U.S. federal agency that conducts research and makes recommendations to prevent worker injury and illness.
NIOSH research is key to these efforts and provides practical solutions to identified problems. The Institute’s work in this area protects the safety and health of the nation's 155 million workers. NIOSH provides the only dedicated federal investment for research needed to prevent the societal cost of work-related fatalities, injuries and illnesses in the United States, estimated in 2007 at $250 billion in medical costs and productivity losses alone . These safety and health risks take huge tolls on workers, their families, businesses, communities, and the nation’s economy; NIOSH works to promote a healthy, safe and capable workforce that can rise to the challenges of the 21st Century.

Robert W. Campbell Award (RWC)
| Bild: |
The US National Safety Council (NSC) with global partners organise the Robert W. Campbell Award, an international award for business excellence. The Award recognizes companies that have successfully integrated health, safety and environmental management into their overall business operations. The Award programme is supported by a network of more than 20 Global Partners across five continents.
Launched in 2004 by the NSC and the ExxonMobil Corp. (via ExxonMobil Foundation), the Award is supported by a network of international partners interested in validating the efforts of businesses and fostering a spirit of cooperation around the globe. By recognising those companies dedicated to safety, health and environmental efforts – and sharing their successes – the Campbell Award strives to impact the way workplaces integrate safety and health into their business functions.

Working with universities
Award-winning submittals are converted to business case studies for integration into business and engineering school curricula so that future generations of business leaders gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the intrinsic value of SHE management to overall business success.
The NSC has carried out activities to encourage business and engineering schools to use the cases. They work with professors, communicating with them to convince them of the value and importance of building OSH businesses cases into their programme. In addition to encouraging professors to use the cases, the NSC aims to get them to provide the NSC with the students’ reports about the cases and to encourage professors to share the cases.
