NIOSH Total Worker Health™ Webinar Series
Recognizing the complex, often interlinked hazards affecting the healthy, safety, and wellbeing of today’s workforce, NIOSH’s Total Worker Health™ program is excited to present an all-new, free webinar series aimed at providing the latest research and case studies for protecting the health—in every sense of the word—of workers everywhere.
Webinar Series Learning Objectives
- Describe recent trends in demographics, employment conditions, worker safety, injury, and illness as they relate to the health and well-being of workers.
- Describe the relationship between at least one health condition and at least one condition of work.
- Discuss the latest findings supporting rationale for implementing a Total Worker Health™ approach.
- List one potential opportunity for integration between health promotion and health protection programs.
- Develop workplace programs and interventions that integrate elements of health protection and health promotion to prevent injuries and illnesses and advance worker well-being.

Intervening for Work Stress: Work-life Stress and Total Worker Health Approaches
Tuesday, August 19, 2014
12:00pm- 1:30pm EST
Leslie Hammer, PhD
Professor, Portland State University
Associate Director of the Oregon Healthy Workforce Center
Dan Ganster, PhD
Senior Associate Dean , College of Business, Colorado State University
In this webinar Dan Ganster and Leslie Hammer will discuss the process of psychosocial stress at work and intervention approaches for alleviating it. Dan will begin with a brief introduction to the psychosocial stress and well-being literature, focusing on key definitions and working conditions implicated in worker mental and physical health. He will then discuss practical intervention approaches that focus on removing or reducing stressors in the workplace. Using several examples of intervention studies, he will discuss key elements to incorporate when designing workplace interventions. He will also outline simple approaches to evaluating the effectiveness of such interventions.
Leslie Hammer will discuss more specifically the concept of work-life stress and its association with health, safety, well-being and organizational outcomes. She will briefly review how comprehensive integrated solutions at both the occupational (health protection) and individual (health promotion) levels may be helpful in mitigating effects of work-life stress and improving health, consistent with the Total Worker Health (TWH™) approach. This presentation will review relationships between work-life stress and health to advance understanding of pathways between occupational and individual risk factors and health and safety outcomes.
