Workers' Health is involved in several projects and activities in the Region

Our role comprises different activities:

  • Assisting countries to design national profiles on workers' health to identify working and employment conditions.
  • Promoting workers' health protection by implementing the "healthy workplace approach."
  • Building capacities to identify, measure, and register occupational injuries, diseases and fatalities at regional and country level, as well as estimating the burdens they cause.
  • Supporting information dissemination, capacity building and networking.
  • Promoting research for providing evidence for policy and decision-makers.

Our broad network of Collaborating Centers and partners in Workers' Health are key resources for meeting these goals. They actively network to build and share knowledge, tools, and successful experiences capable of leading workers' health, safety and wellbeing, and contributing to PAHO's Action Plan in Workers' Health.
