Presentation Topic: Colorado Occupational Health Indicators and other surveillance activities such as ABLES and CFOI that are conducted at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

Occupational health indicators are measures of health (work-related disease or injury) or factors associated with health (workplace exposures, hazards, or interventions) that allow a state to compare its health or risk status with that of other states and evaluate trends over time. These data can help guide priorities for prevention and intervention efforts. The indicators that have been developed represent the consensus view of state and NIOSH representatives and are intended as advisory to the states The indicators are intended to be used in conjunction with other guidelines for state-based surveillance of occupational injuries and illnesses (NIOSH 1995, CSTE 2001) and to be used as a complement to overall state and national goals to improve the health of the population (DHHS 2000).
