Presentations & Workshops

Changing the Traditional Safety Culture to a Total Worker Health Perspective

On the job safety doesn’t just come from rules management makes, it comes from a total worker perspective taking into consideration substance misuse, mental health and any other lifestyle impacting issue. Research shows that a comprehensive effort to promote employee health and well-being, reduce health risks of the workforce, and lessen the complications of chronic disease for employees can reduce health care costs, increase productivity, and boost organizational performance. Approaching worker safety from a total worker health perspective, is not only beneficial, it is imperative as intregating total worker health programs into the workplace leads to healthier workers and workplaces as a whole.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • To define what total worker health is
  • Define what traditional safety in the workplace looks like
  • How to engage workers 
  • What does the future look like with total worker health
