The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Healthy Work Design and Well-Being Program seeks to improve the design of work, work environments, and management practices in order to advance worker safety, health, and well-being. The program works with partners in industry, labor, trade associations, professional organizations, and academia to accomplish its goals. Current priorities include:

  • Improving the organization of work in order to reduce job stress.
  • Advancing the safety and health of workers in non-standard work arrangements, such as temporary agency, contract, and gig arrangements.
  • Protecting workers from the adverse health and safety consequences of shift work, long work hour schedules, and other factors that contribute to work-related fatigue.
