NIOSH Webinar to Discuss "Nonstandard Work Arrangements"

Published June 14, 2017

​On Wednesday, June 28, NIOSH will host a new webinar in its Total Worker Health webinar series, “A New Look at the Way We Work: Nonstandard Work Arrangements and Their Impacts on Worker Safety and Health.” Webinar participants will receive an overview of the terminology, theory, research data, obstacles, and potential solutions for addressing the challenges associated with nonstandard work arrangements. Three speakers will present on NIOSH’s perspective on nonstandard work arrangements, health impacts of nonstandard work arrangements on worker safety and health, and potential interventions and solutions under the agency’s Total Worker Health approach.

NIOSH encourages industrial hygienists and occupational safety and health professionals; employers, risk management, and human resources professionals; health education professionals; and doctors and other medical and nursing professionals to attend. Registration is free. Information about continuing education opportunities, including CME, CNE, CEU, and CECH, is available near the bottom of the webinar series page.

NIOSH defines Total Worker Health as "policies, programs, and practices that integrate protection from work-related safety and health hazards with promotion of injury and illness prevention efforts to advance worker well-being." The free webinar series focuses on the latest research and case studies related to Total Worker Health.

The previous webinars in the series are available as archived recordings via NIOSH’s webinar page.
