The NIOSH Western States Office, in conjunction with the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) and the Mountain and Plains Education and Research Center (MAPERC), hosted the sixth annual meeting for state occupational safety and health colleagues from the Western United States. The meeting was held in Golden, Colorado, September 26-27, 2013.
Every year, WestON convenes to provide an opportunity for Western state and local public health officials to meet and share ideas for establishing and maintaining epidemiological capacity and collaborating with colleagues to expand on efforts to build a strong occupational safety and health network in the West. Information on key western worker safety and health issues, available resources and mechanisms for developing effective state occupational safety and health programs will be
discussed (see agenda below). Attendees include state epidemiologists, state and local health department officials, statistics coordinators, NIOSH, OSHA, Education and Research Center/Agriculture Center representatives and others interested in occupational surveillance and occupational safety and health in the Western United States. For information about previous WestON meetings see below.
