New! COVID-19 and the World of Work


The Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences and the Oregon Healthy Workforce Center are pleased to launch a new portal to share tips and best practices for workforce well-being during the pandemic.

The world of work has rapidly and significantly changed.  For some of us, this is a matter of additional PPE, physical distancing measures, and increased sanitation practices. For others, it means many of our working relationships have gone completely digital.  Our homes have transformed into workplaces and classrooms at a scale we’ve never seen before.

The COVID-19 and the World of Work portal is designed to provide evidence-based and curated content and resources to support Oregon’s workforce in their Total Worker Health® efforts during these unprecedented times. Users can ask questions, view videos and trainings from our faculty and partners, and access articles and resources for worker safety, health, and well-being from almost any device, anywhere, anytime.

Our team of experts is here to share resources and educational opportunities with you as we navigate this new landscape of workforce safety, health, and well-being. The portal will be updated regularly, so be sure to check back often!
