A Comprehensive Approach to Workforce Health

From the CDC, an excellent article:

The health of the U.S. workforce is an issue of importance to both workers and their employers. There is a wealth of evidence on occupational safety and health hazards that may potentially affect workers’ health. In addition to these hazards, personal characteristics and conditions, such as age, gender, genetics, or weight, can impact a person’s work and interact with workplace hazards.

 Thanks as always to NIOSH publications and CDC for important and timely info!
