Safer Healthier Workers

Selected Category: Total Worker Health

National Safety Month

Categories: Drugs, Emergency Response/Public Sector, Motor Vehicle Safety, Observances, Total Worker Health


It’s National Safety Month. Each June, the National Safety Council and its partners raise awareness on preventing the leading causes of injury and death at work, on the roads and in our homes and communities.  This year’s theme is SafeForLife. Each week of June has a different focus area. In this joint blog from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the National Safety Council, we will highlight research and prevention activities in the four focus areas. Help us spread the word about National Safety Month.  Downloadable materials highlighting each of the four safety topics are available on the NSC website. Share them widely to help others identify risks and stay safe – for a lifetime.

DaylightSavingsTimeWebSpring forward Fall back.

We all know the saying to help us remember to adjust our clocks for the daylight saving time changes (this Sunday in case you are wondering). But, what can we do to help workers adjust to the effects of the time change?  A few studies have examined these issues but many questions remain on this topic including the best strategies to cope with the time changes.

Work, Stress, and Health: Help Us Plan the Next 25 Years

Categories: Stress, Total Worker Health


In May, NIOSH, the American Psychological Association (APA), and the Society for Occupational Health Psychology (SOHP) hosted the 11th International Conference on Occupational Stress and Health. “Work, Stress, and Health 2015: Sustainable Work, Sustainable Health, Sustainable Organizations” marks 25 years of efforts to advance research and intervention on work-related stress  through the conference series. Planning for the 12th International Conference on Occupational Stress and Health—“Work, Stress, and Health 2017: Contemporary Challenges and Opportunities”—is already underway.

Tobacco in the Workplace

Categories: Smoking, Total Worker Health



More than half a century has passed since the first Surgeon General’s Report on the health consequences of smoking. Over that 50-year period, cigarette smoking in the U.S. has declined by more than 50% among all U.S. adults. However, tobacco use continues to be the most frequent cause of preventable death and is responsible for about 480,000 premature deaths annually in the U.S. More than 16 million U.S. adults live with a disease caused by smoking. CDC’s “Winnable Battle” of reducing tobacco use targets this important public health problem.

To help address occupational aspects of this important health issue, NIOSH has issued the Current Intelligence Bulletin (CIB) “Promoting Health and Preventing Disease and Injury through Workplace Tobacco Policies.” The CIB provides contemporary recommendations based on the Total Worker HealthTM philosophy of optimizing workers’ health and well-being by augmenting interventions to protect against occupational injury and disease with other beneficial public health interventions.
