Emphasizes an integrative approach to program planning, addressing the individual, job and organizational factors that influence a specific workplace health issue. The process of program development includes: defining the workgroup at risk, developing collaborative relationships with stakeholders, designing a comprehensive program plan, and advocating improved workplace health and safety through written and verbal presentations of the program plan. The program plan includes documentation of a needs assessment, relevant goals and objectives and strategies for implementation and evaluation. The final step in this process is creating a business case for the program plan.
