Healthy Work Design and Well-Being Program
The mission of the Healthy Work Design and Well-Being (HWD) Cross-Sector Program is to protect and advance worker safety, health, and well-being by improving the design of work, management practices, and the physical and psychosocial work environment. HWD partners with industry, labor, trade associations, professional organizations, and academia to better understand the ways in which the design of work affects overall health and well-being, and how it can be improved to enable workers to thrive and contribute productively at work, at home, and in society.
