Who Cares If You Are Happy And Healthy At Work?

Topic Overview: Most working people are not engaged in their health, their safety or their job. Why? We are going to take a look at this question from three viewpoints: economics; psychology; and public health. To solve this riddle, we will collaborate to identify some of the barriers and possible solutions for the “engagement problem.” Two significant parts of the solution are interconnected: our sense of happiness; and our health. We will consider who cares about your health, your safety and your productivity. We will also consider how our personal values and the values of our organizations may converge or collide… and what each of us can do to improve our own sense of engagement while we promote the health, safety and well-being of workers in our roles as occupational health and safety professionals.


  1. Review emerging trends in business and economics that impact worker health, safety, wellness and engagement.
  2. Interpret how the field of psychology can impact occupational health, safety and wellness.
  3. Recognize recent trends in public health, and in occupational health and safety that impact individual contributions to health, happiness and productivity.
