Although some evaluations of worksite physical-activity interventions have been conducted, to date very few randomized trials of worksite health promotion have included the goal of increasing physical-activity levels as part of a comprehensive multiple risk factor approach to worksite health promotion.
This article presents the results regarding behavior change found among the cohorl of 2055 individuals who completed three health-behavior assessments as part of their worksites'participation in The Working Healthy Project (WHP), a multiple risk factor intervention implemented in 26 manufacturing worksites.
In this study, a randomized matched-pair design was used.
Fifty-one percent (n=2,761) of the employees who completed the baseline assessment also completed the interim survey.
Eighty-three percent of those who completed the interim assessment also completed the final survey.
The WHP intervention targeted smoking, nutrition, and physical activity.
At baseline, 38% of the sample reported engaging in regular exercise, and subjects reported consuming an average of 2.7 servings of fruits and vegetables per day, 7.9 grams of fiber per 1000 kilocalories, and 35.4% calories from fat per day ; 28% of the sample were smokers. (...)
