Worksite health promotion programs designed to improve worker health, such as those that help workers stop or reduce tobacco use, have traditionally focused on individual factors and not taken work-related exposures and hazards into account. Through its Total Worker Health™ Program, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommends an integrated approach to addressing personal as well as workplace safety and health factors.
