This webinar features a review of the leading and most urgent health challenges
facing workers and employers and connects them to the ever-evolving list of
workplace hazards and exposures. How do
we keep workers safe from risks on and off the job? How are these risks connected? Which
strategies will best address the totality of risk and which will provide the
biggest value for limited health and safety dollars? This deep-dive will make the case for a new
paradigm in health and safety management. After viewing the webinar, you will be armed with knowledge to help make better health and safety
decisions that you can put into practice right away at the workplace. You will also gain a new
understanding of the possible benefits of taking an integrated, holistic
approach to worker health.
This intermediate-level webinar is
designed specifically for safety officers, industrial hygienists, occupational
safety and health professionals, and occupational health nurses, and other providers. It will also be useful for anyone interested in improving the health, safety,
and well-being of the member of their workforce.
