Who we work with
Almost all countries with successful occupational health systems have a national institute and there are many similar institutes to NIOH around the world. This does not imply that having a national institute necessarily guarantees a good OHS system, but such institutes do seem to be essential components of good systems.
National institutes are not only found in wealthier developed countries. The network of World Health Organisation Collaborating Centres for Occupational Health includes national institutes in a variety of countries spanning varying degrees of economic development from the United Kingdom to Bulgaria, Chile, People’s Republic of China, Columbia, India and South Africa. The NIOH is part of this network, having been granted the status of a WHO collaborating centre in January 2005.
The NIOH has the following collaborations:
World Health Organisation
Work and Health in Southern Africa
