      Worksite health promotion state laws in effect as of July 31, 2016

      Approximately 50% of adults in the United States have at least one chronic health condition. Among that population, 25% have two or more conditions. Chronic disease accounts for 7 out of every 10 deaths in the United States each year, and an estimated 86% of the nation’s $2.9 trillion in health care expenditures.

      Fortunately, lifestyle modifications to reduce associated risk factors of chronic disease could prevent or control it in individuals. Worksite health promotion (WHP) is an evidence-based strategy that operates across multiple levels of authority to target health risk factors and reduce the prevalence of chronic disease. The workplace provides an opportune setting for encouraging healthy lifestyle modification because over 50% of the US adult population spends most of their waking hours at work. Furthermore, employers may benefit from improved workforce health through reductions in the estimated 50% of company profits that are spent on health care, reductions in absences, and increased productivity from employees with one or more chronic health conditions.
