Proposed Project

CDC Work@Health Program: Phase 2 Training and Technical Assistance Evaluation—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).Start Printed Page 71616

Background and Brief Description

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is establishing the Work@Health Program, a comprehensive worksite health promotion training program, to support employers' efforts to create healthy work environments and provide employees with opportunities to make healthy lifestyle choices. The Work@Health Program will train and support small, mid-size, and large employers with three primary goals: (1) Increase understanding of the training needs of employers and the best way to deliver skill-based training to them; (2) Increase employers' level of knowledge and awareness of worksite health program concepts and principles as well as tools and resources to support the design, implementation, and evaluation of effective worksite health strategies and interventions; and (3) Increase the number of science-based worksite health programs, policies, and practices in place at participating employers' worksites and increase the access and opportunities for employees to participate in them.

CDC is requesting OMB approval to initiate Phase 2 information collection. Phase 2 procedures were informed by a needs assessment and pilot test that were conducted in fall 2013 (“CDC Work@Health Program: Phase 1,” OMB No. 0920-0989, exp. 9/30/2014). In Phase 2, CDC will offer training in four models (formats): (1) A “Hands-on” instructor-led workshop model (T1), (2) a self-paced “Online” model (T2), (3) a combination or “Blended” model (T3), and (4) a “Train-the-Trainer” model (T4) designed to prepare qualified individuals to train employers through the Hands-on, Online, or Blended models.

To evaluate the training, information will be collected from approximately 540 employers and approximately 60 individuals who are interested in becoming trained/certified instructors for the Work@Health Program. Respondents will include employers/employees, trainees who participate in the four training models, and training and technical assistance instructors, coaches and subject matter experts.

CDC will use the information collected to evaluate the effectiveness of the Work@Health Program in terms of (1) increasing employer's knowledge and awareness of worksite health concepts, principles, and resources and (2) increasing the number of science-based worksite health programs, policies and practices in place at participating employers' worksites. The information will also be used to identify the best way(s) to deliver skill-based training and technical support to employers in the area of worksite health.

OMB approval is requested for two years. Participation in Work@Health is voluntary and there are no costs to participants other than their time and cost of travel to the training. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 1,601.
