NSC Becomes an Affiliate of the NIOSH Total Worker Health Program

The aim is to help employers focus on employees’ safety, health and well-being

The NSC has become the seventh organization to join the NIOSH Total Worker Health Affiliate Program, according to a news release. The program focuses on increasing the number of work environments that support the integration of occupational safety and health protection with health promotion.

“Eleven Americans die at work each day, which is tragic and unacceptable,” said Jim Johnson, vice president of workplace safety initiatives at NSC. “Establishing safer workplaces and preventing deaths and injuries is a complex issue that requires a cadre of individuals and organizations. The NIOSH program is an archetypal example of collaboration and cooperation, and we are pleased to partner with organizations that share the Council’s mission on saving lives.”

The council aims to do the following: Increase visibility of TWH programs; help other organizations develop a plan for creating safer workplaces based on the most current research; and publicly recognize organizations that help others create safety cultures that are grounded in research.
