Worksite Wellness Kit
The Southern Nevada Health District has developed a Worksite Wellness Kit to share health information, resources and health promotion activities that can be implemented at worksites.
We hope that by implementing some of these tips employee health and productivity will increase; as absenteeism and the cost of insurance claims decrease.
The kit is divided into five sections: Human Resources, Tobacco Prevention, Physical Activity, Nutrition, and Blood Pressure.
In the Human Resources Section two worksheets are provided as guides to help lower overall insurance costs by focusing on prevention. Steps to creating your own worksite wellness programs, and how to keep employees motivated to participate are available. Health information websites and resources, wellness programs and frequently asked questions are included at the end of this section.

The Tobacco Prevention section offers tools to make your workplace smoke-free. A downloadable smoke-free workplace guide will guide you through the process. There is also information on smoke-free restaurants in Las Vegas that you can encourage employees to patronize. Local smoking cessation resources are available to help employees stop smoking.
