Continuing ed course: Work Health and Well-being: Achieving Worker Health

Work Health and Well-Being: Achieving Worker Health will provide participants with the knowledge necessary to apply Total Worker Health® approaches to integrate siloed occupational health, health promotion, and health protection programs. Adopting these practices will ultimately enhance employee health, minimize work-related injuries and illnesses, and reduce employee health care-related costs.

During this program, leading experts in the field will help participants develop the skills to build a roadmap for integrating an organization’s occupational safety and health promotion programs. They will help participants master the foundations of health protection and health promotion, examine the value proposition for Total Worker Health® with a focus on organizational change models and case studies, and gain the skills to make the business case for Total Worker Health® and employee well-being. Participants will also learn the most effective strategies for implementing organizational approaches to improve working conditions at their workplaces.

This program provides skills to build a roadmap to implement a Total Worker Health® approach at an organization; translate occupational health and health promotion research into practice; implement organizational approaches to worker safety, health, and well-being initiatives; and make the business case for improving worker safety, health, and well-being programs.
