Fighting injury with communication

The Center of Occupational Health Education (COHE) Alliance of Western Washington is one of six COHE’s across the state. Labor & Industries launched this initiative to bring together providers, employers, workers and administrators with the goal of promoting adoption of proven practices to get injured workers back on the job both safely and quickly. Health Service Coordinators are on-hand to help manage workplace injury treatment and recovery protocols, and facilitate ongoing communication between all involved.

CHI Franciscan Health is proud to be the sponsor for COHE Alliance of Western Washington. We, and our provider partners throughout the region, are dedicated to helping keep workers healthy and workplaces safe.
