While the NIOSH Total Worker Health® (TWH) program offers both employers and workers health and safety clarity, accountability and productivity, its often hard to apply.  This session provides a practical process for assessing which aspects of TWH can be applied to virtually all industries and organizations by using a real-world example from one of the most highly-stressed occupational areas, including:

  • Policies, programs, and practices that actually work
  • Prioritization of approaches (how to not be overwhelmed)
  • List of pitfalls to avoid
  • Structuring program phases to match your organization's situation, goals, needs and resources
  • "Impact multiplier" application examples from construction, manufacturing, health care and other segments

This session will use case study examples of successful developmental assessment (including an in-depth gap analysis) and action planning within healthcare, and then expand these concepts into other industries. The exercises will explore how attendees can get past superficial approaches, conduct an assessment that is well-targeted, engage the workforce and end up with impactful, realistic priorities for improvement. 

With workplace violence, stress, burnout, and suicide on the rise, the content in this webinar can be helpful to CEOs, Safety Officers, EHS Directors, Operations Managers, Human Resources/Personnel, Security Managers, Facilities Managers and others who share the risk and the responsibility for addressing and ensuring a safe, effective and supportive workplace.
