OMEGA-NET has developed an Inventory of occupational, industrial, and population cohorts, including registry-based cohorts, with data on occupational exposures. For ease of accessibility, it is a database that searchable and web-based. Users will be able to search for specific study types (e.g. occupational; industry-based etc.), exposures and outcomes, and extract information on the cohorts that have relevant data, as well as basic information on the methods used to collect data. Researcher access to inventoried cohorts will also be facilitated with a data access protocol and web-link.

The OMEGA-NET research team would like to encourage researchers to register their cohorts in the Inventory. Please see https://occupationalcohorts.net/

OMEGA-NET has also developed an inventory of occupational exposure assessment tools, including job-exposure matrices (JEMs), exposure measurement databases, exposure prevalence databases, coding systems and coding crosswalks. These tools have been brought together to build an open resource for occupational exposure assessment.

The OMEGA-NET research team is still working on this inventory and would like researchers to register their exposure assessment tools in the Inventory. Please see https://occupationalexposuretools.net/
