The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA), has been recognized as a Health Links Kick-Start business due to their interest and commitment in creating a culture of health and safety in the workplace. NEHA has made a pledge to work with Health Links expert advisors and create focused goals to help their organization advance employee health, safety and well-being.

“Wellness embodies our organizational spirit. We are big enough to advance the health of the nation and small enough to care for the health and well-being of every employee,” said NEHA Executive Director & CEO, David T. Dyjack, Dr.PH, CIH.  

NEHA sets the bar for the environmental health workforce, from credentialing to education and training, so it is a natural fit to promote wellness, health and safety at the NEHA headquarters in Denver.

Health Links recognizes businesses around the state for their excellence in workplace health and safety. Health Links assesses organizations to benchmark their health and safety efforts, provides expert advising by a local Lead Advisor, and connects them with community resources to help them bring health to work.
