The CHAA is intended to: foster awareness of quality health, safety, and environmental programs identify model programs and outstanding practices with measurable results encourage organizational self-assessment and continuous improvement Participating organizations undergo a rigorous review by an expert panel to assess four key categories – 1) leadership/management; 2) healthy workers; 3) healthy environment; and 4) healthy organization. Each award-winning company has achieved a “culture of health” by having company-wide programs in place that promote and protect employee health and safety --which in turn improves worksite wellness and productivity. As a physician or employer responsible for or looking to implement worksite wellness programs, learn from these award-winning companies how your company can achieve a culture of health. 2012 Award Winners Johnson &amp; Johnson Smithsonian 2011 Award Winner URS Corporation 2010 Award Winner Baptist Health of South Florida </p> Bud RomanoFri, 06 Mar 2015 14:52:15 GMTThe Impact of a Worksite Health Promotion Program on Short-Term Disability Usagehttp://www.acoem.org/Page3Column.aspx?PageID=7351&id=1350 <p class="hd1"><b>The Impact of a Worksite Health Promotion Program on Short-Term Disability Usage</b></p> Bud RomanoFri, 06 Mar 2015 14:50:06 GMTBlueprint for Healthhttp://www.acoem.org/HWN_BlueprintForHealth.aspx <p>Blueprint for Health DIABETES ACOEM has initiated its yearlong awareness campaign to help employers identify and respond to chronic diseases in the workplace.
