NIOSH Releases Aging Workers Topic Page

The page offers information related to chronic diseases that accompany aging.

NIOSH has released a new topic page titled "Healthy Aging at Work" on its website that offers information on issues related to aging workers. The page offers "a worker-focused perspective on health and safety and chronic disease issues related to aging" and co-aligns with the Total Worker Health webpage.

Healthy Aging at Work promotes healthy aging in the workplace and provides a series of recommendations and information relating to conditions associated with aging, such as hearing loss and musculoskeletal disorders. According to the press release: "As part of the Total Worker Health Program, Healthy Aging at Work acknowledges that both work-related factors and health factors beyond the workplace jointly contribute to many health and safety problems that confront today's workers and their families. Total Worker Health is a strategy integrating health protection with health promotion to prevent worker injury and illness and to enhance well-being, including that of older workers."
