Health Links™ is a nonprofit initiative spearheaded by health and safety experts at the Center for Health, Work and Environment within the Colorado School of Public Health. Our mission is to simplify how worksite health and safety get done. By doing so, we are helping build healthy, vibrant businesses and a stronger local economy.

Health Links™ recognizes businesses that champion worker wellbeing and safety with the Health Links™ Healthy Business Certification, a program that recognizes small businesses for meeting or exceeding worker health and safety standards. For small businesses that are just getting started, Health Links™ provides support through our Kick-Start Program, which awards seed funding and provides free expert advising to qualified business for successfully building worksite wellness and safety programs.

We connect businesses to each other and to vital resources that can help them succeed. The Health Links™ Healthy Business Network is a group of funded and certified businesses that share best practices and ideas through Facebook and other forums. Through our Preferred Vendor Program, business owners and wellness coordinators can connect with local or national organizations and companies that provide the best health and safety services for their needs.
