Promoting and protecting worker health, safety and well-being

Learn more about WHRN

The Workplace Health Research Network (WHRN) seeks to engage employers, employees and communities to advance knowledge and implement effective, comprehensive and integrated approaches to promote and protect worker health, safety and well-being. The types of approaches supported by the WHRN include research on environmental, policy, and systems interventions; and behavioral aspects contributing to individual employee health. A key focus is integrated, multi-component interventions that address multiple health risks and concerns in various worksite settings, sectors, and sizes. Its members conduct research across its six network centers, crossing academic affiliations and geographic boundaries. The WHRN is a thematic research network of the Prevention Research Centers (PRCs), which are the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) flagship program for preventing and controlling chronic diseases.
