Scientific evidence now supports what many EHS professionals have long suspected—that risk factors in the workplace can contribute to health problems previously considered unrelated to work. And that personal, family and life challenges work face at home impact success on the job. As a result, there is clear value in shifting from a siloed view of employee safety and health toward a more inclusive and comprehensive perspective.
Issues such as diet, shifting employment patterns, an aging workforce, and a blurring of the line between what is work and what is not will increasingly pose challenges for EHS Professionals.
Total Worker Health looks at employee health holistically to provide evidence-based solutions to these problems.
In this webinar, Dr Casey Chosewood, Director of the Office of Total Worker Health at NIOSH gives an overview of the program, and discusses the evidence base for this approach.
