Total Worker Health® Connect 1 - Engage & Inspire

May 30, 2024 | Online | 11:00 - 12:30pm MT

Join us for the latest engagement opportunity from the Society for Total Worker Health™. Total Worker Health ® Connect will bring together society members from a variety of industries to share wins and work together to solve problems using a Total Worker Health approach. Each session will feature a theme related to TWH. Participants will engage in small group discussions where members can seek guidance from one another, work together to address practical hurdles, forge new partnerships, or celebrate achievements. Sessions will conclude with the “action” and a discussion of tangible steps we can use to drive our practices and the field of TWH forward.

In the first installment of this series, we will reflect on our commitment to Total Worker Health and focus on best practices for implementing TWH programs. Our theme is: Engage & Inspire. Total Worker Health Connect sessions are designed to build on one another but is it not necessary to attend every session in a series. Topics or ideas explored in one session may lead to future themes. The networking opportunities can be stand-alone or consecutive. All Society for Total Worker Health members are welcome to participate.

Using Wearable Devices & Deep Learning to Recognize Physical Activities at Work

May 22, 2024 | Online | 12:00 - 1:00pm PST

Accurately quantifying and evaluating occupational physical activities (OPAs) performed by workers is vital for various purposes, including job descriptions, pre-placement/post-hire employee screening, ergonomic evaluations, and facilitating return-to-work processes. Certain OPAs, such as lifting, pushing, pulling, and carrying, are categorized as manual material handling activities, which are known to be associated with an increased risk of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), particularly lower back pain. This presentation will explore the utilization of wearable devices and deep learning methods for recognizing OPAs, both when performed in isolation and as part of simulated work tasks.
