Workshop Overview

Workshop Overview: This workshop is offered as a part of a multiyear Cooperative Agreement conference grant (U13), in partnership with the CDC/National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) entitled “Shaping the Future to Ensure Worker Health and Well-being: Shifting Paradigms for Research, Training and Policy.

This virtual workshop is an activity that is centered on how future changes in the nature of work will (or should) shape occupational safety and health (OSH) research issues, methods, and application.

The objectives of the workshop are to:

1. Examine how the future of work will impact OSH research;

2. Identify gaps and needs;

3. Inform the agenda of a larger international conference in 2021, which will address this topic, among others, in the context of an expanded paradigm for OSH.

About SWCOEH

Your Best Response to a Changing World!

The SWCOEH was established in 1977 as a NIOSH-funded Education and Research Center (ERC), now one of 18 ERCs in the nation. In 1985, the SWCOEH became a World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Occupational Health. Having grown considerably since we were established, we also conduct research on how environmental and occupational exposures affect health and on how to mitigate health risks associated with these exposures. As of 2019, the SWCOEH has been officially approved as an affiliate of the NIOSH Total Worker Health program, strengthening a partnership spanning more than 40 years.
