Health Links™ is a nonprofit initiative spearheaded by the Center for Health, Work & Environment at the Colorado School of Public Health. Health Links collaborates with employers to build a culture of health and safety in the workplace (  They assess organizations’ policies and programs; offer evidence-based recommendations in one-on-one advising sessions; connect employers with local resources; and certify qualifying employers as Healthy Businesses.
