Organizational health psychology

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary/reference book


“Occupational health” is a field of study and related interventions that serve to mitigate and circumvent work-related hazards to people’s physical and psychological health. This is achieved by understanding how work characteristics
influence employee’s health-related behaviors and psychosocial outcomes in both positive and negative ways. These insights guide policy reform, organizational and team-level interventions, and individual-level interventions that are directed at modifying factors that support physical and psychological well-being.
