Description: The NIOSH Total Worker Health Program® outlines the essential elements of an integrated health protection and health promotion model to improve the health and safety performance, not only of employers, but also of employees and their families. The lack of a clear strategy to address the core drivers of poor health, excessive medical costs, and lost productivity has deterred a comprehensive, integrated, and proactive approach to confront these universal employer challenges. The Employer Health and Productivity Roadmap™, comprising six interrelated and integrated core elements, creates a framework of shared accountability for both employers and their health and productivity partners to implement and monitor actionable measures s that improve health, maximize productivity, and reduce excessive costs. In this session, you will be able to view the Employer Health and Productivity Roadmap™, and learn how to use it in your workplace.
