Using Technology To Achieve Total Worker Health
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. As a result, there is clear value in shifting from a siloed view of employee work safety toward a more inclusive and comprehensive perspective. Total Worker Health is a NIOSH-led concept embraced by organizations to not only protect workers, but also advance their health and well-being by targeting the conditions of work. This approach integrates workplace interventions with activities that advance the overall well-being of workers outside the workplace environment. By establishing policies, programs, and practices within the workplace that focus on advancing the safety, health and well-being of the workforce may be helpful for individuals, their families, communities, employers and the economy as a whole. The second webinar in our series, Using Technology to achieve Total Worker Health, shows how you can overcome the challenges presented by complex organizational structures and fluid workforces. Medgate shows that by harnessing technology, you can promote a sustainable TWH program.
