Digital Poster Session 2: Expanded focus for OSH: policy, training and practice

Friday, December 10, 2021 10:00 PM to 11:00 PM


Description: The world of work is undergoing major changes: in the nature of work and employment arrangements, in workforce demographics, and in the types of workplaces, all of which can affect both worker well-being and business productivity. Embracing this paradigm shift requires a more expansive, systems-thinking approach to the design of educational curricula, policies and implementation of workplace practices to achieve the goal of worker well-being, both in specific workplaces as well as over the working life continuum.  This poster session centers on current research and studies investigating various determinants (personal, workplace and socioeconomic) of worker well-being.

Learning objectives: At the end of this session, participants will be able to: (1) describe current policies, educational and practical experiences designed to advance worker well-being; (2) describe how these experiences are integrated into the expanded focus for OSH model; (3) discuss at least one practice-based intervention (policy, curriculum or program) that has served to advance worker well-being.
