Purpose and Scope of the Workshop
Exploring workplace training interventions addressing workplace stress, fatigue, and addiction

Workplace stress, fatigue, and addiction are associated with increased occupational injury and illness. Negative health effects range from high blood pressure, obesity, burnout, depression, PTSD, substance abuse, addiction, and death. The organization of work, inadequate staffing, long hours, hierarchical management styles, and lack of essential health and safety standards, such as an ergonomics standard, are some key factors. Learn about interventions, training initiatives, and best practices in the U.S. and internationally.
