Total Worker Health in Portland (OR) Parks and Recreation

Critical to workforce health is the safe and healthy work and home practices of the nation’s youth.  An innovative program developed by the Oregon Healthy WorkForce Center, a NIOSH Center of Excellence, offers both safety and health training as well as healthful lifestyle information to summer workers in Portland (Oregon) Parks and Recreation pools that is subsequently reinforced by messaging on social media sites such as Facebook and Pintrest.  Depicted are focus group and study presentation meetings in Portland the summer of 2012.  Over 400 summer workers at several Portland pools participated in the training and messaging pilot study conducted by Dr. Diane Rohlman, project PI.
