Guide to Safe and Healthy Workplaces

Lung diseases are among the most common and costly of all health problems. Many potential causes of lung disease can be found in the workplace, but with the proper measures can be easily controlled, creating safer and healthier working conditions for all employees.

Making the decision to focus on improving air quality indoors, providing resources for employees who smoke or are living with a chronic lung disease will curb rising health care costs, help employees adopt healthier lifestyles, and lower the risk of developing costly chronic diseases.

The American Lung Association offers a comprehensive toolkit to help employers adopt and implement workplace policies that support a healthy work environment while providing health education resources to support lung health. Find out if your workplace is Lung Friendly.
