NIOSH Launches Total Worker Health Affiliate Program

Participation in the program is voluntary and intended for public-sector entities; labor organizations; academic institutions; federal, state, or local entities; and non-profit associations that align with the principles of a TWH approach.

NIOSH's Office for Total Worker Health recently launched an Affiliate Program to increase the number of work environments that support the overall safety, health, and well-being of workers. Its inaugural members include the University of Colorado School of Public Health and NASA, according to NIOSH's announcement.

The Affiliate Program's goal is to increase the capacity and scope of public and not-for-profit organizations, as well as attract new collaborators to enrich and broaden current NIOSH TWH translational research and publicly recognize the contributions of the affiliates toward the development and dissemination of TWH research and practice.

"At NIOSH, we recognize the benefits of integrating traditional workplace safety and health programs with newer worker health promotion programs to achieve total worker health," said NIOSH Director Dr. John Howard. "The Affiliate Program helps to further advance the integration of health protection and health promotion within other organizations."

Participation in the program is voluntary and intended for public-sector entities; labor organizations; academic institutions; federal, state, or local entities; and non-profit associations that align with the principles of a Total Worker HealthTM approach. To participate, contact the Office for Total Worker Health via email to twh@cdc.gov.
