Total Worker Health® is defined 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 worker well-being.
The Total Worker Health® (TWH) approach advocates for a holistic understanding of the factors that contribute to worker well-being. Scientific evidence now supports what many safety and health professionals, as well as workers themselves, have long suspected—that risk factors in the workplace can contribute to health problems previously considered unrelated to work.
The Nebraska Safety Council and WorkWell are privileged to be collaborating with NIOSH and the CDC on the Total Worker Health® program. For more information view our Total Worker Health® Webinar with NIOSH Total Worker Health® Outreach Coordinator, Chia-Chia Chang.
