Abstract
A position statement and framework for advancing health promotion ideas and related functions concerned with worker well being at the job site were being developed. This study demonstrated the range of possibilities within current NIOSH surveillance, epidemiology, control research, information dissemination and training activities for developing such an integrated program. Specific tasks dealt with by the working group and reported on included: shaping a position for NIOSH on traditional health promotion activities which would be compatible with the mandated concerns for protection from hazards at the workplace; inventorying NIOSH projects which included elements having significance to health promotion; and developing a framework to be used in organizing current and future work, mixing health promotion with workplace hazard protection objectives. The author suggests that the theme endorsing worker participation in hazard recognition and monitoring programs should be further developed. Flagging real or suspected job safety hazards and rating their impact on worker safety attitudes and injury rates should be explored. Additional emphasis is needed on the effect of various lifestyle features on occupational risk factors.
