In the May 2013 issues of JOEM is an article, Advancing the Health Protection and Promotion of an Aging Workforce. This article, prepared following an ACOEM and National Institute for Safety and Health (NIOSH) Summit in 2012, explores issues related to the aging workforce, including barriers to integrating health protection and health promotion programs, and provide recommendations for best practices to maximize contributions by aging workers. Consensus statements and actions steps were identified for each of the Summit goals and Call to Action statements were developed. The article calls for a national dialogue to build awareness of integrated health protection and health promotion for the aging workforce emphasizing that workers will benefit from improved health and performance; employers will realize a more engaged and productive workforce; and the nation will gain a vital, competitive workforce.
