Walking Toolkit 

Thank you for participating in Walk Out On Your Job! We have created a list of resources for you and your coworkers to use at your workplace. Most adults spend lots of time at work. We must have healthy habits at work if we are going to live a healthy lifestyle.

Policy

Most people get confused by the word health policy. Health policies are formal or informal statements designed to protect or promote employee health. A simple health policy could be you and your coworkers pledge to walk for 10 minutes everyday during the work day. That is a simple health policy designed to get everyone moving! 

A good policy looks at the problem in your workplace. What is keeping you and your coworkers from being healthy at work? What are simple changes that you can make to create a healthier environment? No smoking on campu

s, mandatory walks, or only drinking water at while at work are just a few examples of policies that could create a healthier work environment.

The CDC has created an assessment for you to use. This can help you determine what kind of policy would be good at your workplace!
