    This study examined associations among health behaviors, psychosocial work factors, and health status.


    Correctional supervisors (n=157) completed a survey that assessed interpersonal and organizational views on health. Chi-square and logistic regressions were used to examine relationships among variables.


    Respondents had a higher prevalence of obesity and comorbidities compared to the general U.S. adult population. Burnout was significantly associated with nutrition, physical activity, sleep duration, sleep quality, diabetes, and anxiety/depression. Job meaning, job satisfaction and workplace social support may predict health behaviors and outcomes.


    Correctional supervisors are understudied and have poor overall health status. Improving health behaviors of middle-management employees may have a beneficial effect on the health of the entire workforce. This paper demonstrates the importance of psychosocial work factors that may contribute to health behaviors and outcomes.
