Firefighting, Police Work, and Emergency Medical Services are some of the most dangerous and stressful occupations in the world. Heavy physical demands, psychological stress, and exposure to hazardous materials and infectious disease contribute to occupational death and disability.

At Health Strategies, our Workforce Fitness Program offers OSHA-mandated testing services arming police, firefighters, and EMS workers with the screenings and assessments they need to maximize their safety on the job. We customize our programs to meet the unique needs of each department with the ultimate goal of helping employees improve their health, attitudes and work habits. Departments that offer Workforce Fitness Programs will reap the benefits of their investment through stronger performance and loyalty, along with reduced workers’ compensation, disability and health claims.
