Because workplace health promotion is new to many employers and workers, WorkHealthy Oregon disseminates information about successful applications of health promotion through highly-interactive classroom education and research projects.
Four current projects include:
- NECA-IBEW Team Awareness Project, which trains electrician apprentices how to get help for themselves and to offer help to coworkers (You can read more details about this project in chapter 5 of the “Young Adults in the Workplace: A Multisite Initiative of Substance Use Prevention Programs“)
- Fit to Perform, which trains healthcare supervisors how to recognize and manage employee impaired performance
- Addressing Nurse Impairment Seminar, which educates student nurses and practicing nurses about their ethical responsibility to address a colleague’s impaired performance and deliver a helpful message
- Healthy Workplace Values, which educates work teams about team member responsibilities for team health
