1-19-23 – Dr. Paul Landsbergis & Colleagues Publish APHA Policy Document on Decent Work

Today, the American Public Health Association (APHA) published a Nov. 2022 policy document titled “Support Decent Work for All as a Public Health Goal in the United States.”*

As stated in the abstract:

The International Labour Organization defines decent work as work that is “productive, delivers a fair income, provides security in the workplace and social protection for workers and their families, offers prospects for personal development and encourages social interaction, gives people the freedom to express their concerns and organize and participate in the decisions affecting their lives and guarantees equal opportunities and equal treatment for all across the entire lifespan.”

Excitingly, this policy paper was co-authored by Paul Landsbergis, PhD MPH, our esteemed, longtime CSE research associate and Healthy Work Toolkit Principal Investigator. Dr. Landsbergis continues to oversee our Healthy Work Strategies case studies, one of our most valuable resources on healthywork.org, while making an impact on the next generation as an Associate Professor in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences at the SUNY-Downstate School of Public Health in Brooklyn, New York. You can learn more about Paul here.

Starting December 6th, our newest campaign partner, National Council for Occupational Safety and Health (National COSH), will be hosting their annual conference, COSHCON. This year, it is again virtual, and there are still plenty of spots and you can attend as you’re available: December 6-8, as well as 13-15.

This dynamic conference brings together a diverse, inclusive and bilingual group of workers, occupational health and safety experts, unions, activists and academics united around common goals–to celebrate and encourage workers’ power, make our workplaces safer, and reduce the toll of on-the-job injuries, illnesses and fatalities. All of the workshops and other programming will be held in both English and Spanish.

Tickets are $90 before December 6th, when they go up to $99 a person. If you are a student or need financial assistance, you may qualify for a full scholarship. To register, visit https://nationalcosh.org/COSHCON2022.
