Título Are physical activity and nutrition indicators of the checklist of health promotion environments at worksites (CHEW) associated with employee obesity among hotel workers?
Información bibliográfica Jan. 2010, Vol.52, No.1S, p.S4-S7. 17 ref.
Resumen Worksites provide opportunities to reach more than 60% of adults in the United States, including populations diverse in race, ethnicity, gender, age, occupation, income, and health status. Employers that provide worksite weight management interventions have the potential to reduce sick leave, health care costs, and workers compensation costs, and increase employee morale and worker efficiency. Hotels specifically, represent a broad cross-section of job categories, and most hotels are staffed and operated similarly around the world. This study tested the relationship between environmental factors in hotels and employees' body mass index (BMI). Subjects included 11,559 employees of 30 hotels in Hawaii. Findings are discussed. Overall, no logical pattern of association was found between workplace environmental factors and hotel employee BMI levels.
