ESHH 621 Principles of Occupational Health
Occupational Health students will learn about the current Total Worker Health® approach to creating safe and healthful work environments. This perspective emphasizes the integration of traditional controls to protect workers from injury and occupational illness with protections and supports to advance well-being and health. Within this perspective the first priority is to identify workplace hazards
and implement interventions to eliminate or control them. However, this expanded perspective also encourages workplace enhancements that foster worker health and well-being.
