Occupational Health Surveillance Program
To promote safe and healthy workplaces for all New Mexico by:
- Evaluating work-related injuries and illnesses
- Targeting intervention and prevention
- Raising awareness among workers, employers, health care providers and the public
The New Mexico Department of Health, in partnership with the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, has established an occupational injury and illness surveillance system. The aim of surveillance is the ongoing collection of work-related health data to track occupational health issues for our state.
The core of this program is the New Mexico Occupational Health Registry (NMOHR) which is a repository for occupational health data and physician reports. These data are used to target high-risk work places for prevention by education of workers, employers, and health care providers.
