What Is Total Worker Health?

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.

Learn about the five key elements of Total Worker Health® (TWH), a concept coined and supported by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). The aim of this approach is to expand traditional safety programs to better support the health, safety and well-being of workers. Discover important takeaways relevant to the construction industry with practical case examples from organizations that have implemented this approach to date.

When? March 21st, 2024 from 8-10am (breakfast provided)
