OSH 4956 - Comprehensive Worker Health and Wellness

2 - 4 credits (Variable)
Comprehensive Worker Health and Wellness integrates traditional occupational safety and health (OSH) with worker health and wellness, not only on the job but in general.  The NIOSH Total Worker Health (TWH) program guidelines and information will be referenced, along with principles of both psychological and physical health and fitness that affect and are affected by one’s occupation. NIOSH defines TWH 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.”  Injury and illness protection and prevention are considered as related to overall worker health.  This expanded view of worker well-being is a win-win approach that benefits workers and their families, employers, and the community.

Prerequisite(s): Consent of Instructor. May be repeated for maximum of 6 credits. Course offered on demand.
