Our Story

Organizations that foster a healthy, safe workplace culture have healthier, more productive teams. That’s why we offer a comprehensive certification and advising program that helps organizations achieve Total Worker Health®. Health Links™ is a program of the Center for Health, Work & Environment at the Colorado School of Public Health.

Our online Assessments benefit employers of all sizes and types. Whether your team works in an office, in the field, on a site, in their homes or somewhere else, we can help you create a healthier and safer environment. Healthy Workplace Certification* is available to companies, non-profits, colleges, government agencies and all other organizations operating in the United States.

Health Links was created by Lee Newman, MD, and Liliana Tenney, MPH, two passionate occupational health experts with more than 30 years of combined experience researching, designing, and executing workplace interventions. As former small business owners themselves, Lee and Lili saw a need for a program that could help organizations, particularly smaller organizations, build responsible, sustainable cultures that support health and safety. Thus, Health Links was born.

The program is based on principles distilled from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Worksite Health ScoreCard, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Total Worker Health model, the World Health Organization Healthy Workplace Framework, and a growing body of scientific research.

We’ve spent years working with organizations to solve challenges and accomplish health and safety goals that support impactful culture change. We put that experience to work as we create and refine tools that bring research insights into the real world.
