Recently, a booklet titled Improving Workers’ Health Across the Globe: Advancing the Global Plan of Action for Workers’ Health was jointly published by National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health (FIOH), which are both World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centers for Occupational Health.
The booklet highlights examples of successes and serves these purposes:

- To recognize the achievements of the collaborating centers and non-governmental organizations to improve worker safety and health.
- To give examples of effective approaches to improving workplace health and safety.
Additionally, the booklet illustrates the shared goal of NIOSH, FIOH, and the Network of WHO Collaborating Centers for Occupational Health: to enhance international workplace safety and health through global collaborations.
