The HHSP objectives strive to create sustainable change that will transform our communities, schools, health care, and worksites to support the health of the people of Hawaiʻi. Stakeholders developed the HHSP objectives to shape policy, systems and environmental change in the four sector areas: Community Design and Access; Education; Health Care; and Worksite. The objectives are showcased by sector area and include key strategies, baseline, and target measures. The HHSP is meant to be a living document that is reviewed and updated throughout the plan’s timeframe. Implementation of the plan will be a collective effort by individuals and organizations across the state.

Sector Area Description: The Worksite Sector includes places such as public and private work environments.

Sector Area Goal: All of Hawaiʻi’s worksites will create a culture of wellness through supportive programs and policies that promote tobacco-and nicotine-free workplaces; breastfeeding; healthy food and beverage choices; physical activity and active commuter opportunities; health screenings; and early detection, risk reduction, and self-management of chronic diseases.
