Mature EHS programs are often looking for tools and a framework to move their EHS programs to the next level. In this webinar, we’ll look at one framework that can deliver this level of maturity and sophistication. We will highlight how EHS managers can partner with industrial hygienists and ergonomists to help shape their health and safety program beyond compliance by implementing the following worker health program elements recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH):
- Design work to eliminate or reduce safety and health hazards and promote worker well-being by controlling chemical, physical, biological hazards and exposures.
- Organizing and optimizing how work is performed using ergonomics.
- Promote and support worker engagement throughout program design and implementation.
