The Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) recommends combining the assessments of health risks with feedback (AHRF) approach with education programs to improve specific health conditions for workers. Worksite health promotion programs aim to improve health behaviors or conditions among workers. Through this approach, assessments identify a worker’s health risks, and feedback explains options to address these risks. CPSTF recommends this approach to improve the following outcomes:

  • Tobacco use, excessive alcohol use, or other health risks
  • Seat belt use
  • Dietary fat intake, blood pressure, and cholesterol
  • Days lost from work due to illness or disability
  • Use of health care services
