Description

NIOSH established the National Center for Productive Aging & Work (NCPAW), hosted by the Office of Total Worker Health®. An important part of the center’s mission is the concept of productive aging, which involves providing a safe and healthy work environment for workers of all ages, and creating conditions that allow workers to function optimally regardless of their age. Using case studies, this presentation will advance the concept of productive aging and present evidence-based methods for facilitating an age-friendly workplace. You will have access to tools and strategies that encourage a culture of health that facilitates intergenerational collaboration and support.

  • Describe how productive aging is relevant to workers of all age groups.
  • Identify at least three strategies that can be incorporated into the workplace to create a more age-friendly environment.
  • Describe changes in workplace safety and health outcomes that occur as a workforce ages.
