Updates from the 1st International Symposium to Advance Total Worker Health

As NIOSH Director Dr. John Howard noted in his stirring keynote address for the 1st International Symposium to Advance Total Worker HealthTM, “Work is one of the characteristics that distinguishes us as human beings, and so work bears a particular mark of our humanity.” He went on to clarify the role of a Total Worker Health (TWH) approach in breaking down the current silos of workforce health and how application of the TWH approach depends on a foundation of adequate health protection.

Integrated Safety and Health for Small Businesses

Many small business owners say that they simply lack the resources or the time to promote worker safety and health. With these challenges in mind, a recent NIOSH Total Worker Health™ Webinar united complementary efforts of one of the original NIOSH-funded Centers of Excellence to Promote a Healthier Workforce and a new NIOSH Total Worker Health Affiliate to delve into the issue of integrated interventions for smaller businesses.

Open for Public Comment: Proposed National Total Worker Health Agenda

We invite you to provide input on the top-priority research, practice, and policy issues to include in the proposed National Total Worker Health™ Agenda to help improve integrated workplace practices, prevent worker injury and illness, and advance worker safety, health, and well-being. The draft agenda is available for public comment, until closing of the federal docket on December 22, 2014, 11:59 pm EST.

Four New NIOSH Total Worker Health Affiliates
