The Corporate Health Achievement Award (CHAA) is an exciting opportunity to recognize organizations with exemplary health, safety, and environmental programs. Participating organizations submit a comprehensive application about their program and undergo a rigorous review by an expert panel to assess four key categories: Leadership & Management, Healthy Workers, Healthy Environment, and Healthy Organization. Awards have been given to deserving organizations in manufacturing and service sectors, including city health departments, federal agencies, and healthcare systems. Also, certificates of merit have been bestowed for model programs noted as sections of applications.

  • to foster awareness of quality health, safety, and environmental programs
  • to identify model programs and outstanding practices with measurable results
  • to encourage organizational self-assessment and continuous improvement

  • Experience a review of their programs by a professional team of trained examiners
  • Receive valuable feedback and confidential insight on program strengths and areas for improvement
  • Gain widespread recognition for best practices and model programs

The CHAA is now open to smaller organizations!
