NIOSH Total Worker Health: webinar series

30.10.2018

On October 30th, the NIOSH Total Worker Health Webinar Series in conjunction with the National Center for Productive Aging and Work presents the next installment in the Productive Aging and Work annual webinar series.

Joanne Crawford, Section Head, Ergonomics and Human Factors at IOM will present in the webinar entitled Overlapping Vulnerabilities in the Aging Workforce. 

Registration open


Social and economic dynamics and structures can shape the experience of aging. Aging does not happen in a vacuum. A comprehensive perspective of productive aging—the support of safe and healthy work environments through integrated strategies that allow workers to be safe, healthy, and productive at all ages— must consider how factors such as class, race, and gender and economic trends (e.g., growth of the temporary workforce) can all contribute to the vulnerability of aging workers to occupational illness and injury. 

The objective of this third installment of the Productive Aging and Work webinar is to explore from three complementing views how the social and economic context can influence the occupational safety and health experience of aging workers. 

First, Dr. Joanne Crawford of the Institute of Occupational Medicine in Edinburg, Scotland will discuss issues related to gender and age, focusing on older women in the context of occupational safety and health. 

Second, Dr. Jennifer Swanberg of Providence College will focus on low-wage older workers and health disparities.

Finally, Dr. Richard Johnson of the Urban Institute will present on the socioeconomic factors that influence work experiences and transitions into retirement of vulnerable populations. Free continuing education credits for this activity are pending.
