ANNOUNCING THE Total Worker Health™ ESSENTIALS VIDEO SERIES

Employers are eager to learn about evidence-based resources to improve their employees’ safety and health and to improve their organization’s bottom line.  To meet that need, the University of Iowa’s Healthier Workforce Center has created a free video series, Total Worker Health™ Essentials.  

Total Worker Health is a strategy developed by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) that integrates occupational safety and health protection with workplace policies, programs, and practices that promote health and prevent disease to advance worker safety, health, and well-being.

Award-winning, small Midwestern businesses share their experiences with workplace programs that protect and promote workers' health, safety, and well-being both on and off the job.  The series of 8 short videos includes advice on topics such as getting started, low-cost solutions, and return on investment.  The video series has been praised by regional and national experts.

“As a career EH&S Manager, I have viewed countless health, safety and wellness videos.  This new series from the University of Iowa’s College of Public Health is unique,” Mitas Tires Environmental Health & Safety Manager Gerald Edgar stated.  “Time is money, so when there is a need to educate people on any topic we need to have materials that are both attention-getting AND memorable.  This series fits the bill as well as or better than any other series I am aware of.“

“Through the eyes of those responsible for keeping workers safe and healthy, these vignettes give practical, actionable advice and explore the increasingly challenging interface between our health and our work,” said Dr. L. Casey Chosewood, Director of the NIOSH Office for Total Worker Health™.
