NIOSH, Partners Presenting Total Worker Health Workshop This Week

The Dec. 9-10 "Pathways to Prevention: Total Worker Health® --What's Work Got to Do With It?" workshop is free and open to the public; it is taking place at the NIH campus in Bethesda, Md.

NIOSH's Office for Total Worker Health®, the National Institutes of Health Office of Disease Prevention, and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute are co-sponsoring a Dec. 9-10 workshop that will evaluate the current state of knowledge on integrated approaches -- beyond basic prevention -- to workers' safety, health, and well-being. This "Pathways to Prevention: Total Worker Health® --What's Work Got to Do With It?" workshop is free and open to the public; it is taking place at the NIH campus in Bethesda, Md.

NIOSH defines Total Worker Health as policies, programs, and practices that integrate protection from work-related safety and health hazards with promotion of injury and illness prevention efforts to advance workers' well-being. This approach recognizes that risk factors in the workplace can contribute to many health problems previously considered unrelated to work, including cardiovascular disease, obesity, depression, and sleep disorders. The workshop will look at how work can impact safety and health and will seek to clarify these questions:

  • What studies exist assessing integrated interventions?
  • What are the known benefits and harms of integrated interventions?
  • What are the characteristics of effective integrated/combined interventions and programs?
  • What factors influence the effectiveness of integrated interventions?
  • What are the key evidence gaps?

The event is located at Masur Auditorium, NIH Clinical Center building, 10 Center Drive, Bethesda, MD 20892. For more information or to register, visit https://prevention.nih.gov/programs-events/pathways-to-prevention/workshops/total-worker-health. CEUs are available for in-person attendees.
