Abstract
Workplace design strongly impacts the health, safety, and well-being of workers. Using a life cycle approach and eliminating hazards and minimizing risks to workers who construct, maintain, operate, and occupy the workplace built environment will reduce occupational injuries and illnesses related to design factors. In addition, the workplace can be designed to facilitate and encourage healthy behaviors. Considering that the time spent in the workplace is second only to the time spent in the home, designing workplaces to both protect and promote the health of the worker is a public health opportunity.
