Activity Description

The IOM will develop and conduct a public workshop focused on identifying prevalent and best practices in programs that integrate occupational health and safety with health promotion in small, medium, and large workplaces. Participants will be invited from employers and employees in small, medium, and large workplaces; employer and employee associations; academia; government agencies; and other stakeholder groups.

The workshop will feature invited presentations and discussions on:

  • Best or promising practices associated with the design, implementation, and evaluation of an integrated approach to worker health, including factors associated with successful implementation;
  • Barriers to implementing integrated occupational health and safety and health promotion programs and ideas for overcoming those barriers, and
  • Measures being used or considered for evaluating the effectiveness of programs that integrate occupational health and safety with health promotion.

The workshop will result in a published summary that highlights the presentations and discussions.
