To offer a definition of an “integrated” approach to worker health and operationalize this definition using indicators of the extent to which integrated efforts are implemented in an organization.
Guided by the question, “How will we know it when we see it?” we reviewed relevant literature to identify available definitions and metrics, and used a modified-Delphi process to review and refine indicators and measures of integrated approaches.
A definition of integrated approaches to worker health is proposed and accompanied by indicators and measures that may be used by researchers, employers and workers.
A shared understanding of what is meant by integrated approaches to protect and promote worker health has the potential to improve dialogue among researchers and facilitate the research-to-practice process.
