Resources for Total Worker Health®

National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Centers of Excellence for Total Worker Health® (TWH)
NIOSH funds six Centers of Excellence (Centers) to conduct work on the concepts of TWH. The Centers build evidence-based practices, including intervention-focused research, outreach and education, and evaluation activities to identify solutions that work. The Centers’ research looks at the integration of occupational safety and health protection with workplace policies, programs, and practices to advance worker safety, health and well-being. The contingent workforce, the changing nature of work, low wage workers, shift work, fatigue, workforce diversity, and cost and benefits of interventions are examples of topics that the Centers are addressing.
