Workplace Safety & Health at Sargent & Associates
Today, evidence recognizes that both work-related factors and health factors beyond the workplace jointly contribute to many safety and health problems that confront today’s workers and their families.
Traditionally, workplace safety and health programs have been compartmentalized. Health protection programs have focused squarely on safety, reducing worker exposures to risk factors arising in the work environment itself. And most workplace health promotion programs have focused exclusively on lifestyle factors off-the-job that place workers at risk.
Sargent & Associates manages both safety and health & wellness...for TOTAL WORKER HEALTH.
A growing body of science supports the effectiveness of combining these efforts through workplace interventions that integrate health protection and health promotion programs. >
