Healthy Northland helps create health where we live, work, learn and play.
On average, Americans working full-time spend more than one-third of their day, five days per week at the workplace. The use of effective workplace programs and policies can reduce health risks and improve the quality of life for everyone.
Worksite wellness efforts address nutrition, physical activity, tobacco cessation and exposure and lactation support; and can include:
- Tobacco free grounds on all worksite properties, tobacco cessation support
- Healthy food at meetings, in cafeterias, healthy vending or snack station, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) drop site, on campus Farmers Market, employer sponsored gardens or orchards
- Increasing access to worksite recreational facilities and allowing flex time for physical activity breaks
- Stress management
- Lactation support
- Here’s a Took Kit to get you started!
