August 15 marked the sixth annual Health Links™ event, Celebrating Colorado’s Healthiest Places to Work. In a demonstration of the state’s commitment to worker health, safety, and well-being, Governor Jared Polis proclaimed August 15th Total Worker Health® Day. Seven organizations and one individual were honored with awards for their dedication to workplace health, safety, and well-being. Poudre School District was presented with the Governor’s Award for Worksite Wellness by the Governor’s Council for Healthy and Active Lifestyles in partnership with Health Links, a program based at the Center for Health, Work & Environment at the Colorado School of Public Health.
“These organizations are making significant investment in promoting and protecting the health, safety, and well-being of the Colorado workforce.” said Ms. Lili Tenney, director of Health Links. “And this year to have the Governor proclaim the day officially as Total Worker Health Day represents just how important this work is to shaping the future of our state.”
