Abstract

This randomized prospective trial aimed to assess the feasibility and efficacy of a teambasedworksite health and safety intervention for lawenforcement personnel. Four-hundred and eight subjects were enrolled and half were randomized to meet for weekly, peer-led sessions delivered from a scripted team-based health and safety curriculum. Curriculum addressed: exercise, nutrition, stress, sleep, body weight, injury, and other unhealthy lifestyle behaviors such as smoking and heavy alcohol use. Health and safety questionnaires administered before and after the intervention found significant improvements for increased fruit and vegetable consumption, overall healthy eating, increased sleep quantity and sleep quality, and reduced personal stress. 2014 Kuehl , Elliot , Goldberg , MacKinnon, Vila, Smith, Miočević, O'Rourke, Valente, DeFrancesco, Sleigh and McGinnis.
