Helena, MT – The Montana Department of Labor & Industry (MTDLI) recently announced the launch of the Montana Occupational Health & Safety Surveillance (MOHSS) website. This portal will provide the public with information about work-related illnesses and injuries, and workplace safety issues for the state.
Information on the website includes:
- Reports on work-related injuries, illnesses, and fatalities in Montana;
- Helpful links and reports on a wide variety of occupational health topics;
- Resources and tools for improving workplace health and safety;
- Research tools and resources used to study occupational health data;
- Noteworthy news concerning workplace health and safety.
“As Montana continues making slow but steady strides to improve workplace safety, we are now able to provide a data-driven resource for the private and public sector to follow that progress,” said Commissioner of Labor & Industry Pam Bucy. “Our goal at the agency continues to be focused on making sure workers come home safely after work.”
Funded through a grant from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), this new web portal is part of a multi-state effort to provide critical information about injury and illness trends, understand risk factors, and recognize new or emerging problems in workplace safety. The website also features a brand new report that reviews occupational health indicators and trends in Montana from 2004 to 2014, and provides conclusions and recommendations to improve workplace health and safety in Montana.
