The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is hosting a virtual Tribal consultation session to receive input and recommendations on a draft document entitled, “American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) Worker Safety and Health Strategic Plan, 2022-2031.” NIOSH is proposing research and outreach activities to enhance worker safety and health in tribal communities and requests input on the draft AI/AN strategic plan. The CIO is requesting feedback from Tribes on:

  • AI/AN workforce including critical occupational safety and health concerns
  • Recommendations for NIOSH partnership with Tribal nations
  • Interorganizational collaboration with NIOSH
  • NIOSH communication improvement with Tribal organizations
  • Necessary resources to address concerns


Input from consultation will be used in the development of the AI/AN strategic plan. A copy of the Dear Tribal Leader Letter is available here. The current CDC Tribal Consultation Policy can be found here.
