Smoke-Free Site

A smoke-free policy bans smoking of any kind on the property, including but not limited to: cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and electronic cigarettes. The policy should cover the entire property.  A smoke-free policy is a great first step toward gradually shifting to a tobacco-free environment.

This WellSpot has implemented a tobacco-free policy.



Tobacco-Free Site

The foundation for WellSpot designation is centered on tobacco-free environments.  A tobacco-free policy prohibits use of all tobacco products on an organization’s property.  This includes tobacco in all forms, as well as any type of smoking device.

This WellSpot has implemented a tobacco-free policy.



Tobacco Cessation Coverage

To meet this benchmark for WellSpot recognition, an organization’s employee health plan must cover tobacco cessation counseling and/or medications, including nicotine replacement therapies.

This WellSpot offers tobacco cessation coverage as part of its health plan.



Worksite Wellness – Beginning Implementation

Worksite Wellness is a major component of WellSpot designation criteria.  Changing the culture of health in the workplace through worksite wellness programming has a multitude of benefits for both employees and employers.  The “Beginning Implementation” phase of a Worksite Wellness Program includes obtaining support from management, designating staff members to lead the program, and planning employee evaluations to build a foundation for the program.

This WellSpot has implemented the beginning stages of their Worksite Wellness Program.



Worksite Wellness Program Workplan

This phase of Worksite Wellness Program implementation includes the development of a workplan or calendar of events based on employee survey results.

This WellSpot has developed a workplan or calendar of events for their Worksite Wellness Program.



5-2-1-0 Partner

The 5-2-1-0 program is adapted from the evidence-based 5-2-1-0 program developed by the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center.

     5-2-1-0 stands for:
     5 or more fruits and vegetables per day
     2 or less hours of recreational screen time per day
     1 or more hour of physical activity per day
     0 sodas or sweetened beverages per day

This WellSpot promotes the 5-2-1-0 program in at least two ways in its facility.



Healthy Vending

WellSpot designation encourages organizations to help “make the healthy choice the easy choice” at their facility.  Implementing healthy vending makes healthy snack options more readily available.  State vending guidelines define healthy items as having 250 calories or less, 35% or less total calories from fat (excluding nuts and seeds), 10% or less total calories from saturated fat, 30g or less sugars, and 360mg or less sodium. 

This WellSpot has certified that at least 50% of their vending machine items meet healthy vending guidelines.



Nutrition-Based Policy

The majority of people’s waking hours are spent at work.  Many of those work hours are spent in meetings and conferences, where foods served are high in fat, added sugars and sodium, and contain few fruits, vegetables and whole grains.  Any change, big or small, to create or improve health and wellness is valued.  This WellSpot has adopted a nutrition-based policy to healthy food options in the workplace.
