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.
