Fully integrate your EHS/OHS activities, initiatives, and goals with your organization’s broader risk management efforts.

Worker health, organizational health, and the risks associated with them are all interconnected. A breakthrough body-of-work has been evolving called “Culture of Health for Business” that distinguishes these interconnections and presents frameworks that can be used to increase organizational resilience and worker fulfillment.

This webinar introduces key distinctions and frameworks in this cutting-edge arena and shows how they can be applied within existing EHS/OHS risk management programs and systems. Emphasis is placed on metrics and how to integrate them into audit programs.

You will be empowered to begin applying the culture of health ideas, in turn increasing your leadership visibility. Additionally, you’ll gain insights on how to strengthen existing Total Worker Health™ programs or to lay the groundwork for implementing a new one.

Join us and leave with immediate takeaways on how you can impact existing systems, internal auditing, and external ESG reporting for the better.
