 A New Look at the Way We Work: Nonstandard Work Arrangements and Their Impacts on Worker Safety and Health

In this presentation of the NIOSH Total Worker Health Webinar Series, an expert panel of speakers will discuss the concept of nonstandard work arrangements. Covered topics include:

  • the NIOSH perspective on what is considered a ‘nonstandard work arrangement’;
  • health impacts of nonstandard work arrangements on worker safety and health; and
  • potential interventions and solutions consistent with a TWH approach.

Together, these three presentations provide a complimentary overview of terminology, theory, available research data, obstacles, and potential solutions for addressing the challenges associated with nonstandard work arrangements. We hope you can join us!
