Total Worker Health

Total Worker Health (TWH) is defined by the CDC as: policies, programs, and practices that integrate protection from work-related safety and health hazards with promotion of injury and illness prevention efforts to advance worker well-being.

The Healthier Workforce Center of the Midwest, a partnership between the The University of Iowa, Dr. Evanoff’s Occupational Safety and Health Research group, and the Nebraska Safety Council, serves as a resource for policies, programs, and practices that integrate protection from work-related safety and health hazards with health promotion to advance worker well-being.
