Americans See Steepest Decline in Life Expectancy Since WWII

In this episode, Editor Sydny Shepard discusses a new partnership between NIOSH and ASA to protect temporary workers, new data on the latest decline in life expectancy and research that shows heat-related injuries might be significantly underreported.

In today’s episode, we are going to cover a lot of ground so I hope you’re ready. First, we will start off talking about a new partnership to promote safety and health for temporary workers. Then, the CDC announced that life expectancy in the United States has seen its sharpest decline since World War II. How much is this decline and what is to blame?

Finally, we will explore new research that shows there may be more heat-related injuries in the United States than previously thought.
