Olin Corporation: Olin Brass and Winchester® Ammunition Divisions

The Olin Corporation East Alton, Ill., facility is headquarters for the Brass and Winchester® Ammunition Divisions. It is the largest single plant location in the company with approximately 3,500 employees. Olin Brass manufactures copper and copper alloy strip, sheet and welded tube. Winchester® Ammunition is a leading producer of sporting ammunition. These divisions received a CHAA Model Practice Award for their On-site Primary Care and Diabetes Management Programs

Olin offers on-site primary care to all area employees, spouses, and retirees. The program is unique in that not only is primary care offered on site; but participants can designate the Olin East Alton providers as their primary medical provider within local area health plans. In addition, individuals with diabetes have free access to a registered dietician who comes on site, explains diabetic dietary guidelines, and provides individualized dietary regimens. Diabetic patients are encouraged to come to the clinic for foot exams, blood pressure monitoring, and laboratory testing in accordance with the American Diabetes Association’s guidelines. Employees and their spouses are also offered the opportunity to attend a diabetic support group.



Pitney Bowes, Inc.: "Powering the Business by Promoting a Healthy Workforce" is the theme for this global company with 30,000 employees. Integrated health initiatives are described, including on-site medical clinics for primary care and medical surveillance. A 1999 study of the medical clinic initiative revealed savings of at least $ 1.3 million from lower costs of providing medical care and gains in productivity.

Motorola Semiconductor: One challenge facing this business unit was to align the company's existing environmental-health-safety (EHS) infrastructure with recognized EHS management systems, namely, ISO 14001 and OSHA's program. This included demonstration of a risk-based EHS management approach and development of systems' audit process in order to assure compliance, manage risk and encourage improvements.


Brookhaven National Laboratories: "Diagnosis and Treatment of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses - Case Management" is presented. Active case management began in 1997 in response to higher than average lost workday rates and costs. A case management team approach resulted in significant reductions in rates for lost and restricted work days.

Idaho National Engineering & Environmental Laboratory: "Hazard Assessment Surveillance System" and "Electronic Medical Record" are recognized as exemplary programs. The former system has been used for about 170,000 patient encounters over 5 years, and the latter system has logged approximately 7000 samples and 2000 exposure assessments over a three-year time period. The results are expedient propagation of information ("enter once") and trending by use of pick lists and relational databases.



National Security Agency: An integrated occupational risk assessment system is recognized by CHAA Examiners as being a highly effective tool for identifying potential health risks and tracking mitigation efforts. (The Agency reapplied and won the CHAA in 2001.)



Eli Lilly and Company: "Leveraging Employer Assets for Improved Health Services." From a company recognized for broad array of excellent employee health programs, "perspective" and "scope" of purpose that lay the groundwork are described. The keys are knowing customer's (management and employees) perspective of on-site services, setting or adjusting the scope of these services, and then leveraging the width and depth of company presence, professional skills, and opportunity.
