WNYCOSH - Our Mission

Western New York Council on Occupational Safety and Health

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to defending workers’ rights to a safe and healthy work environment through outreach, advocacy and education, to improve the working conditions of all workers.

WNYCOSH provides worker safety and health training to thousands of workers in the Western New York area covering a wide range of topics on how to identify, evaluate and control hazards they are exposed to on the job.

Healthcare workers experience some of the highest workplace injury rates in the U.S. with overexertion as the leading cause. NYS healthcare workers suffer more overexertion injuries than laborers and freight, stock and material movers.

The WNY Worker Center hotline, can assist you to solve problems at your workplace including not being paid all wages earned, an unsafe work environment, discrimination, or other issues.
