Class description

Total Worker Health® (TWH) is a comprehensive approach that ensures that policies, programs, and practices are well-integrated in an organization to protect workers from different work-related safety and health hazards and promote worker well-being. This workshop will demonstrate the importance of implementing TWH in the Construction Industry and beyond. Participants will have an opportunity to discover important takeaways and relevant resources on this increasingly relevant topic. Case studies based on real-world examples of TWH implementation will be shared and discussed. These are valuable communication tools to show the business and value proposition to different stakeholders.

The intended audience for this workshop is occupational health and safety professionals and any other professionals intersecting with workers’ health, safety, and well-being, such as human resources, risk management, wellness, and disability management specialists. No prior knowledge of TWH is required, but enrolled students should be familiar with the field of occupational health and safety.

This workshop is hosted by AGC Alaska and presented by the Oregon Healthy Workforce Center (Oregon Health & Science University) and the Northwest Center for Occupational Safety and Health (University of Washington).
