Overview

Total Worker Health® (TWH) is a paradigm-shifting approach to safety, health, and well-being in the workplace which seeks to establish a foundation for safety and health through which work can contribute to higher levels of well-being and productivity. This approach acknowledges risk factors related to work that contribute to health problems previously considered unrelated to work.

This webinar focuses on raising awareness of key industry stakeholders, particularly in the Gulf Coast oil and gas industry, to the value of the TWH approach and on how it can be operationalized in your organization.

At the end of this session, attendees should be able to: (1) define Total Worker Health® and (2) use web-based resources to begin implementation strategies for new approaches of worker well-being and productivity.
