What's work got to do with it? Podcast Series

Oregon Healthy Workforce Center (OHWC) and Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences at OHSU is launching a podcast series geared toward highlighting the ways in which work can affect our overall safety, health and well-being. The podcast will share scientific findings around important topics like sleep, sitting, job stress, and how the work environment can impact our health, well-being, productivity. What's work got to do with it? will feature faculty and staff, as well as community members, and industry professionals to dive to discuss public health significance of occupational health and make science accessible for all through sharing of basic and applied science.

  • Do Culture of Health, Safety, and Well-Being: Focused on best practices for building a culture of well-being, these sessions will address how practitioners, workplace champions, and employees can implement strategies for kickstarting and maintaining a culture of health, safety, and well-being. In addition to expert sessions, attendees will benefit from the Total Worker Health 101 curriculum, a practitioner-focused workshop conducted by the Oregon Total Worker Health Alliance.
