Abstract
Preserving and improving the health and well-being of people who work is a goal shared by workers, their families, and their employers. Illness and injury, whether resulting from work or offwork activities, reduces income, quality of life, and opportunity for both the affected workers and those dependent on them. The WorkLife Initiative, a program developed by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and partners, seeks to better understand and promote the kinds of work environments, programs, and policies that result in healthier, more productive workers with reduced disease and injury and lower health care needs and costs. It is based on a foundational commitment to workplaces free of recognized hazards and the idea that better work-based health policies and programs can help to sustain and improve the health and wellbeing of workers.
