Washington County Public Health is conducting Workplace Health Assessments at local businesses. Upon a business’s request, Jen Weidman evaluates the impact a workplace might have on an employee’s health. After she does the on site assessment, she submits summaries that provide the business tips and recommendations on how to improve their situation. She says the goal is to increase productivity and decrease healthcare costs by preventing the leading causes of death and disability.
