The California Labor Laboratory, a NIOSH Center of Excellence for Total Worker Health®


The mission of the California Labor Laboratory is to extend the pursuit of health and safety for workers in traditional employment to those in a wide range of alternative arrangements in partnership with affected communities. The Labor Lab is designed to document the extent to which these new forms of work are being used, to gauge their effect on the health of the working age population of the State, and to engage with workers, employers, and policymakers to mitigate these effects.

The Lab is a collaborative venture of investigators from several departments at UCSF and UC Berkeley, along with partners at the California Department of Public Health, UCLA School of Public Health, and Harvard University Kennedy School.
