Course Description

This webinar will describe best practice solutions for improving and measuring employee and employer outcomes related to safety, health, and well-being, using a management systems approach shaped by employees.


You will learn

  • To apply a conceptual model describing the pathways through which working conditions may shape worker wellbeing.
  • To implement best practices using a set of guidelines on how to build organizational capacity for integrated approaches to worker safety and health.
  • To describe and measure core indicators of these best practices to improve and protect worker safety, health and wellbeing.


Take-home messages

  • Worker safety and health outcomes share common pathways in the conditions of work, underscoring the need for system-level changes.
  • Addressing multiple pathways in an integrated manner will contribute to greater improvements in health outcomes than addressing each pathway separately.
  • Measuring indicators of best practices can provide guidance for priority setting and decision making, and can inform future intervention efforts.
