Please join the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the August session of Public Health Grand Rounds,“New Frontiers in Workplace Health.” This session will be available via live webcast from CDC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia on Tuesday,Aug. 15, at 11 a.m.

Work-related injuries and stress are increasing.

Each year, more than 4,500 deaths occur from work-related injuries, and 10–20 percent of all cardiovascular diseases among working-age people are work-related. Stress is the leading workplace health problem and a major occupational health risk, ranking above physical inactivity and obesity.

What can be done to protect worker health and stem rising healthcare costs?

Workplace health and safety programs are opportunities to address these issues, but employers may lack resources to implement such programs. CDC is launching a “Workplace Health Resource Center,” an easy-to-use, one-stop website, with more than 200 resources for employers and employees.

Learn more about how to make workplace health programs work.

Workplace health and safety programs could potentially reach more than 159 million workers across the United States. Join us for this session of Public Health Grand Rounds as experts discuss comprehensive integrated approaches, best practices, and the role state health departments have in the support of workplace health and safety.

Discover opportunities and new tailored programs for small employers. Learn about the new tools and resources CDC offers, and hear about policy recommendations from the Partnership and Bipartisan Policy Center.
