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 09:52:15 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.

This initiative recognizes the workplace as a critical location for achieving the goals of health care reform and for improving the overall health of employees and their families. The HWN initiative is intended to: Raise awareness among policy makers, thought-leaders and others of the critical nature of the workplace in improving the overall health of employees and their families; Advocate for, and support effective implementation of, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act by leveraging the unique expertise of occupational medicine physicians in managing population health especially as it relates to such evolving concepts as accountable care organizations (ACOs) and the patient-centered medical home (PCMH); and Provide state-of-the-art of support tools to those on the “front line” of establishing, promoting, and analyzing the impact of workplace wellness and prevention programs. Without a healthy and productive workforce, the United States will not be able to sustain its long-term health care programs – nor will it thrive in an increasingly competitive global marketplace. What is health and productivity management? The HWN web site has been developed for: Physicians/Other Health Professionals responsible for both population health management and individual worker health; Businesses/Employers interested in implementing programs/services to improve worksite wellness, reduce costs, and improve productivity; Employees workers interested in improving their health through lifestyle changes and/or participating in worksite wellness programs.
