Healthier Federal Workers 2011
A New Symposium Promoting the Health, Safety and Wellness of Federal Workers was held September 14-16 at Georgetown University Hotel and Conference Center in Washington, DC. Healthier Federal Workers 2011 was offered by: The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, the US Office of Personnel Management, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Federal Occupational Health, the US Department of Health and Human Services, and the Eagleson Institute.

Work, Stress, and Health 2011: Work and Well-Being in an Economic Context
The Ninth International Conference on Occupational Stress and Health was held in Orlando, Florida on May 19-22, 2011, with preconference workshops and opening events on May 19. This conference was convened by the American Psychological Association, NIOSH, and the Society for Occupational Health Psychology. The Conference addressed the changing nature of work and the implications of these changes for the health, safety, and well-being of workers. In 2011, the conference gave special attention to economic aspects of job stress – which was especially appropriate given the worldwide economic turmoil. Expert presentations and informal get-togethers with leading scientists and practitioners provided an exciting forum for learning about the latest developments on the conference topics.

Work, Stress, and Health 2009: Global Concerns and Approaches
The eighth international conference on occupational stress and health, Work, Stress, and Health 2009: Global Concerns and Approaches will be held at the Caribe Hilton Hotel, in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on November 5-8, 2009, with Preconference Workshops on November 5. This conference is convened by the American Psychological Association, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, and the Society for Occupational Health Psychology.

Work, Stress, and Health 2008: Health and Safe Work Through Research, Practice, and Partnerships
March 6 – 8, 2008, Washington, DC.

WorkLife 2007: Protecting and Promoting Worker Health
In September of 2007, NIOSH and over thirty-five co-sponsors and supporters conducted a national symposium called WorkLife 2007: Protecting and Promoting Worker Health. More than 450 participants explored the science and economics of integrated work-based programs, policies, and practices that sustain and improve worker health and wellbeing. National and international leaders from the business, labor, and academic communities provided ample evidence that, in some settings, comprehensive or integrative approaches to work and health are beneficial. Numerous case studies and anecdotal reports provided support for the concepts that workplace conditions can promote worker health, and healthy workers are good for business.

Steps to a Healthier U.S. Workforce Symposium
In the fall of 2004, NIOSH and more than 50 co-sponsors and supporters conducted a national symposium to explore the science and economics of integrated work-based approaches to protect and promote worker health and to discuss the current state of practice. National and international leaders from business, labor, and academic communities provided ample evidence that, in some settings, integrative approaches to work and health are beneficial. Numerous case studies and anecdotal reports provided support for the concepts that workplace conditions can promote worker health, and healthy workers are good for business. Nevertheless, most approaches have not been subjected to rigorous evaluation, and the validity of generalizing from limited experience is far from certain. Symposium participants strongly encouraged NIOSH to lead efforts to improve the scientific exploration of the benefits and limits of integrated programs for improved worker health and well-being.
