Welcome to Gender, Work and Health Portal

This Gender, Work and Health web portal provides a single point of access to a clearinghouse of some of the most current and credible information, research and tools (resources) on topics related to gender, work and health. These topics include gender differences in workplace injury and illness, gaps in knowledge and improving risk prevention. In order to create safe and healthy workplaces, we must understand how gender and sex influence work and health, and integrate gender into occupational safety and health activities.
