Healthy Department Certification

The Healthy Department Certification was launched in Fall 2018 and is designed to highlight those departments that are making strides toward practicing and promoting health and well-being in the workplace.

The application focuses on nine areas of well-being and aims to start a conversation on where your department is doing well as well as highlight areas that have room for improvement. 

  • Physical Activity
  • Department Culture
  • Stress Management
  • Managers and Supervisors and Emotional Health
  • Communications and Promotions
  • Ergonomics
  • Physical Environment
  • Safety
  • Food Environment


The 2020-21 Healthy Department Certification is now open!

You can complete the Certification from August 3, 2020 - October 16th 2020. It is recommended that you complete the application with at least one other colleague or a wellness committee in your department to ensure that all viewpoints and interpretations of the questions are considered. The Healthy Department Certification is good for three years. For instance, if you completed the Certification in Fall 2018, you will not need to complete it again until Fall 2021.
