Occupational safety and health remain major concerns in the workplace. To address this, the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has developed the Total Worker Health® (TWH) approach, defined as “policies, programs, and practices that integrate protection from work-related safety and health hazards with promotion of injury and illness prevention to advance worker well-being.” The TWH framework serves two main purposes: safeguarding workers from work-related safety and health risks and promoting sound work practices to enhance general well-being, including physical and mental health. Despite the development of numerous safety and health interventions, there is a notable gap in organization-level integrated TWH assessment tools. Existing tools lack applicability, robust psychometric techniques, and typically rely on small sample sizes. To address this gap, my team and I have developed a TWH Climate scale, building upon the established 40+ years of Safety Climate literature. We define TWH Climate as employees’ shared perceptions of their organization’s policies, procedures, and practices as they relate to the value and importance of safety, health, and well-being within the organization. The TWH climate includes three sub-climate scales: Safety Climate, Physical Health Climate, and Wellbeing Climate. In addition to the TWH Climate scale, our team has further expanded our research to help organizations build a respectful workplace. We are developing the Respectful Workplace Climate Scale, a tool that measures employees’ perceptions of company policies, procedures, and practices related to building a respectful workplace. This RWC climate scale addresses key dimensions of discrimination, diversity, equity, and inclusion; organizational justice and fairness; bullying and harassment; and workplace civility. My talk will cover three main topics: (1) reviewing the nature and importance of safety climate; (2) describing my prior and current research on the development and validation of various climate scales (including the Total Worker Health Climate Scale and the Respectful Workplace Climate Scale); and (3) discussing the future plans of my organizational climate research and how these tools can be utilized to contribute to Building a Safe, Healthy, and Respectful Workplace.
