The CDC’s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) believes that organizations should look beyond traditional safety programs to create healthier, more fulfilling work environments for their people.

Today’s guest, Dr. Casey Chosewood, is a Senior Medical Officer and Director of the CDC’s NIOSH Total Worker Health® Program. The program seeks to improve the overall health and well-being of employees by shaping the policies, programs, and practices organizations incorporate into their safety cultures.

In this episode, Casey explains why the needs of workers should be front and center at every organization.

Listen to our conversation to hear about:

  • How organizations can adopt the Total Worker Health® Program to keep employees safe at work and empowered in their overall health
  • How prioritizing employee well-being can benefit the bottom line
  • Why workplace flexibility is key to a happier, more engaged, and fulfilled workforce
  • Why total worker health is good for companies, communities, and the economy as a whole
