Businesspulse: Workplace Safety and Health
Business Pulse: Workplace Safety and Health, launched today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Foundation, focuses on innovative employer strategies using science-based solutions from CDC’s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to address emerging worker safety and health issues and well-recognized workplace hazards and exposures. The issue features an interactive infographic that provides useful facts and links to NIOSH programs and online CDC resources that help employers protect and promote the health of workers.
U.S. employers face complex challenges ranging from the $263 billion economic burden of worker injuries and illnesses to a rapidly changing workforce and the costly consequences of work-related stress and chronic disease management. Businesses can take practical steps to address these concerns and improve the health and safety of their workforce and increase productivity.
