Developmental Projects on Worksite HRAs (NIOSH).
Selected Papers of the 21st Annual Meeting, San Francisco, California, November 25, 1985, Society of Prospective Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana, 1986:70 pages
Papers were presented describing projects on worksite Health Risk Appraisals (HRAs), developed cooperatively by NIOSH and the Association of Schools of Public Health, to explore the technical, scientific, social, and educational issues involved in providing worksite health promotion programs for blue collar or hourly wage workers. The major purpose of the projects was to create prototype health risk appraisal programs, with integration of worksite hazards and exposures with lifestyle risk factors. The involvement of organized labor was required, and input and output formats were to be modified to accommodate workers with reading level or language problems. The five papers were: The Occupational/Environmental Health Risk Appraisal, Moving toward a Consideration of Total Risk; Worksite Health Promotion Utilization Health Risk Appraisal, The Painter's Project; Worksite Health Promotion Utilizing Health Risk Appraisal; Project to Modify the CDC Health Risk Appraisal for Blue Collar Workers; Model for Occupational and Environmental Risk Factors, A Pilot Study; and Worksite Wellness Using the CDC Health Risk Appraisal (Adaptation, Implementation and Evaluation). The three appendices included sample letters for painters, the use of health hazard appraisal with blue collar populations, and a description of the Washington study.
