Our Total Worker Health® toolkits are programs designed to improve workplace safety, health, and well-being through organizational change utilizing "gold-standard" research methodology. Toolkit components address the area of Total Worker Health ("TWH"), such as the TWH Hierarchy of Controls and issues relevant to TWH (e,g., changing the work environments to eliminate or reduce work hazards, redesigning work structures, improving supervisory practices, enhancing workplace culture, and encouraging positive workplace safety and personal health behaviors). Outcomes of these studies include improved workplace practices (supervisors and employees), reduced injury, improved safety and lifestyle behaviors, and enhanced well-being.
