About Us

WNYCOSH was founded in 1979 by labor, environmental, and public health activists. The founding conference of over 300 people was organized to raise public awareness about toxic exposures and illnesses at Love Canal and at the Goodyear plant in Niagara Falls, NY. Over the past 34 years, WNYCOSH has built a membership base of labor union locals, health & safety activists, as well as many public health and legal professionals and individuals interested in occupational safety and health issues.  WNYCOSH has empowered hundreds of thousands of workers including young workers, refugee and immigrant workers, low-wage workers and workers in high hazard industries through direct training to identify, evaluate and control hazards in the workplace.
 
We've helped build local, state and national coalitions such as the Coalition for Economic Justice, NYS Labor-Environment Network, WNY Fair Trade Coalition, OSHA-Environmental Network and the NYS Zero Lift Task Force to protect, as well as secure, important new labor and workplace safety and health standards.
