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.



Promotion of LA Tobacco Quitline

Promotion of cessation services available in the state is key to assisting individuals in their attempt to quit.  It is important to make these services known so tobacco users know where to go to get help in their quit attempts.

This WellSpot has met all the requirements regarding promotion of the LA Tobacco Quitline.



Participation in Breastfeeding Welcome Here

The Louisiana Breastfeeding Coalition encourages businesses to support employees and patrons who breastfeed or pump milk to feed their babies.  The Breastfeeding Welcome Here campaign is a great way to start showing support!

This WellSpot participates in the Breastfeeding Welcome Here campaign.



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.



Promotion of Self-Assessment Tools 

WellSpots are asked to promote self-assessment tools that assess an individual's risk for developing prediabetes or heart conditions. These self-assessment tools are critical for detecting signs and symptoms of diabetes or heart conditions in their early stages.  

This WellSpot promotes self-assessment tools for prediabetes and heart health among employees.  



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.  



Health education programs provide the skills, knowledge and attitudes that help congregation memebers learn how to prevent and/or maintain chronic disease.

This WellSpot has implemented at least 1 health education-based practice.
