CPH-NEW

The Center for the Promotion of Health in the New England Workplace (CPH-NEW) conducts research with working people and employers to overcome workplace obstacles to health. The Center also offers research-based program toolkits and education to help employers support a health-promoting workplace and a vital, productive workforce.  

CPH-NEW is one of six national Total Worker Health® Centers for Excellence funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. Total Worker Health (TWH) is a concept referring to all aspects of work that contribute to worker safety, health, and well-being.

Our research seeks to understand how to help a workplace be health-promoting, what makes an effective TWH program, and the feasibility of delivering a TWH program in different types of settings. We are especially interested in topics such as job stress, musculoskeletal disorders, organization of work, and worker engagement in program design.

We are a multi-disciplinary team of faculty, staff and students from the University of Massachusetts Lowell and the University of Connecticut (Storrs and Health Center campuses).
