Using the CDC INPUTS Survey to Improve Workplace Health and Safety
October 29, 2014 at 9am Pacific / 11am Central / Noon Eastern
Meeting Description   Details

Safety professionals know that organizational climate, culture, structure, and work organization can be a source of obstacles to health, safety, and wellness interventions. Despite the importance of these organizational characteristics, their assessment can be daunting.

The INPUTS™ survey, a product of intensive research and analysis, represents a ready-to-use instrument to accomplish this goal. The INPUTS™ survey was developed as part of the CDC-funded National Healthy Workplace Program to identify these promoters and obstacles in the working environment.

During this live webcast, Dr. Nicholas Warren will review the domains assessed by the survey, explain the practical rationale for each, and review scoring procedures needed for feedback to the organization. He will also review the basics of how to protect employee privacy and confidentiality, while building trust on the part of both employees and management. These are all necessary precursors to a participatory problem solving approach involving employees from all levels of the organization.
