The NIOSH Office for Total Worker Health® is excited to bring three opportunities to advance worker safety, health, and well-being to your inbox. We hope you’ll mark your calendars for these opportunities.

Each year, more than 4,500 deaths occur from work-related injuries, and 10%–20% of all cardiovascular diseases among working-age people are work-related. Join NIOSH Office for TWH Director, Dr. L. Casey Chosewood and other expert panelists at the next CDC Public Health Grand Rounds “New Frontiers in Workplace Health” live on Facebook, August 15th at 1pm ET. http://bit.ly/2u4e5jO
NIOSH TWH Webinar Series: The National Center for Productive Aging and Work (NCPAW) and the NIOSH Office for TWH are co-hosting a free webinar, “Interventions and Promising Practices in the Aging Workplace”, as part of the Productive Aging and Work webinar series and in observance of National Employ Older Workers Week. The aging of the workforce in the U.S. and many other countries is having a profound impact on how we conceptualize and approach occupational safety and health. In this webinar, three expert presenters will provide a complimentary overview of interventions and promising practices for addressing the challenges and opportunities posed by an aging workforce. Join us on September 28th from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM ET for this exciting event. Continuing education credits are pending for this activity. Register Now!
