Total Worker Health® (TWH) is a NIOSH/CDC strategy that proposes that integrating occupational safety and health with worksite health promotion results in a “synergism of prevention” to improve the health of the workforce. This session will identify two key areas where health promotion programming has begun to be integrated with health protection practices in multiple settings within a multinational oil company. The evidence base supporting health as an enabler of safety and productivity will be presented with specific focus on sleep and obesity. Leveraging standard process improvement techniques, the session will describe the evolution of whole-person health strategies that focus on sleep health and weight management as a means of improving health, safety and human performance. Success factors
and challenges that accompany the implementation of TWH in a decentralized company will be discussed.
