Climate Resilience

The NIEHS Worker Training Program (WTP) has been working with its awardees and federal partners to explore the environmental and human health impacts of climate change and the risks workers and communities face as the consequences of climate change become more apparent. An assessment conducted by the National Clearinghouse has identified a number of climate change health impacts and related occupational health effects for workers trained under the WTP, as well as the anticipated training needs associated with those impacts. The climate change assessment report is located below, along with additional resources that address occupational health and safety issues related to climate change, and ways to build individual and community resilience to the impacts of climate change. Please visit our Responder & Community Resilience page for related information on behavioral health training for disaster-impacted workers and communities.
