In 2011, NIOSH launched the Total Worker Health program to support research toward improving and sustaining worker safety, health, and wellbeing.
As an affiliate, the City of Eugene fosters an integrated approach to protecting and promoting worker well-being through collaboration with NIOSH. We take a holistic view of total worker health by encouraging a healthy work, home, and community life. Since life extends beyond the work day, so do many City wellbeing offerings.
Every Wednesday an email will be sent to promote #WellbeingWednesday as a means to impacting overall staff wellbeing. Activities are intended to be self-guided, reflect a variety of wellbeing components, and be accessible to employees.
Employees can participate in multiple free community and professional development classes, use a City-sponsored bike, or access resources to improve physical and mental wellbeing. Whether accessing affordable health benefits, preparing for potential emergency situations, or practicing safety at home and work, City employees have many ways to maximize total worker health.
