Employer Resources for Well-being During COVID-19
The Healthier Workforce Center has developed a COVID-19 resource page where regional employers can find the latest evidence-based practices and policy recommendations for ensuring the health, safety, and wellbeing of their workers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

This resource page is continuously updated with new resources from the federal government, the Center, and our partners. All resources are free to access and may be downloaded or embedded in your organization's materials.

Total Worker Health Strategies for COVID-19
April 29th @ 3pm CT

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted new gaps and opportunities in employer efforts to promote and protect worker safety and health. Recognizing these unique challenges, the St. Louis Area Business Health Coalition (BHC) is pleased to collaborate with the Healthier Workforce Center of the Midwest, the Nebraska Safety Council, and the University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita to develop a new  Total Worker Health ® Employer Guide: COVID-19 Edition.

Join us for a webinar on April 29 at 3:00 PM (CST) to receive a first look at this new tool and to learn more about best practices and resources to support employee well-being, address remote and essential worker hazards, and plan for return-to-work strategies during the pandemic. Case studies from Midwest employers will also demonstrate innovative approaches and lessons learned among industry leaders.
Now is the time to investigate emerging issues that impact the health, safety, and well-being of workers, particularly essentials workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Topics relevant to Total Worker Health include:

  • improving work organization,
  • assessing the contribution of occupational stressors to the burden of chronic health conditions among employees (e.g., obesity, cardiovascular disease, and depression),
  • optimizing return to work outcomes,
  • injury/illness prevention strategies among populations particularly at-risk for adverse health outcomes (e.g., older/younger workers, immigrant workers, and those with part time or precarious employment arrangements).
