Although chronic diseases are among the most common and costly health problems, they are also among the most preventable. Adopting healthy behaviors—such as eating nutritious foods, being physically active and avoiding tobacco use—can prevent the devastating effects and reduce the rates of these diseases. Employers are recognizing the role they can play in creating healthy work environments and providing employees with opportunities to make healthy lifestyle choices. To support these efforts, the Centers for Disease Control PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and Prevention (CDC) plans to offer a comprehensive workplace health training program called Work@Health. The Work@Health Program is authorized by the Public Health Service Act and funded through the Prevention and Public Health Fund of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). The Work@Health curriculum will be based on a problem-solving approach to improving employer knowledge and skills related to effective, science-based workplace health programs, and supporting the adoption of these programs in the workplace. Topics to be covered in the Work@Health curriculum include principles, strategies, and tools for leadership engagement; how to make a business case for workplace health programs; how to assess the needs of organizations and individual employees; how to plan, implement, and evaluate sustainable workplace health programs; and how to partner with community organizations for additional support. The Work@Health Program will be implemented in two phases. In Phase 1, CDC will conduct an employer needs assessment, develop training models, and conduct pilot training and evaluation with approximately 72 employers and other organizations. In Phase 2, CDC will transition to full-scale program implementation and evaluation involving approximately 600 employers and other organizations. CDC is requesting OMB approval to initiate Phase 1 information collection in summer 2013. A one-time Training Needs Assessment Survey will be administered electronically to 200 employers representing small, mid-size, and large businesses from various industry sectors and geographic locales. The needs assessment survey will allow CDC to assess employer preferences with respect to curriculum content, the types of support materials needed by employers and the appropriate level of detail for these materials, and the best approaches for providing technical assistance to employers. The estimated E:\FR\FM\16MYN1.SGM 16MYN1 28851 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 95 / Thursday, May 16, 2013 / Notices burden per response for the needs assessment survey is 20 minutes. The results of the needs assessment will inform the development of the Work@Health training curriculum and delivery methods. CDC anticipates that training will be offered in four models (formats): (1) A ‘‘Hands-on’’ instructorled workshop model (T1), (2) a selfpaced ‘‘Online’’ model (T2), (3) a combination or ‘‘Blended’’ model (T3), and (4) a ‘‘Train-the-Trainer’’ model (T4) designed to prepare qualified individuals to train employers through the Hands-on, Online, or Blended models. Employers who are interested in participating in Work@Health training will be asked to complete a Pilot Employer Application Form. To be eligible for the T1–T3 pilot trainings, employers must have a minimum of 30 employees, a valid business license, and completion of the pilot training, each participant will be asked to complete a 15–20 minute evaluation survey. The customized survey questions will allow CDC to assess respondent satisfaction with the procedures, methods, content and strategies employed in each workplace health training model. The information collected in the pilot training evaluation surveys will inform future modifications and improvements to the training based on employers’ experiences, needs, and recommendations. Only the evaluation survey for the Online model pilot will be the administered electronically, all others will be paper/pencil surveys. Participation is voluntary and there are no costs to participants other than their time. A separate information collection request will be submitted to obtain OMB approval for Phase 2 information collection. have been in business for at least one year. In addition, they must offer health insurance to their employees and have minimal workplace health program knowledge and experience. To be eligible for the T4 training model, applicants may be employers, health departments, business coalitions, trade associations, or other organizations. Participants in the T4 training must have previous knowledge, training and experience with workplace health programs, and an interest in becoming facilitators for the Work@Health program. CDC anticipates the receipt of approximately 400 applications. CDC will use the application information to select 72 respondents for Phase 1 pilot training and evaluation activities (18 respondents per model). Three-fourths of these individuals will represent small and mid-size employers.

Proposed Project

    CDC Work@Health Program: Phase 1 Needs Assessment and Pilot 
Training Evaluation--New--National Center for Chronic Disease 
Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control 
and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    In the United States, chronic diseases such as heart disease, 
obesity and diabetes are among the leading causes of death and 
disability. Although chronic diseases are among the most common and 
costly health problems, they are also among the most preventable. 
Adopting healthy behaviors--such as eating nutritious foods, being 
physically active and avoiding tobacco use--can prevent the devastating 
effects and reduce the rates of these diseases.
    Employers are recognizing the role they can play in creating 
healthy work environments and providing employees with opportunities to 
make healthy lifestyle choices. To support these efforts, the Centers 
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) plans to offer a comprehensive 
workplace health training program called Work@Health. The Work@Health 
Program is authorized by the Public Health Service Act and funded 
through the Prevention and Public Health Fund of the Patient Protection 
and Affordable Care Act (ACA). The Work@Health curriculum will be based 
on a problem-solving approach to improving employer knowledge and 
skills related to effective, science-based workplace health programs, 
and supporting the adoption of these programs in the workplace. Topics 
to be covered in the Work@Health curriculum include principles, 
strategies, and tools for leadership engagement; how to make a business 
case for workplace health programs; how to assess the needs of 
organizations and individual employees; how to plan, implement, and 
evaluate sustainable workplace health programs; and how to partner with 
community organizations for additional support.
    The Work@Health Program will be implemented in two phases. In Phase 
1, CDC will conduct an employer needs assessment, develop training 
models, and conduct pilot training and evaluation with approximately 72 
employers and other organizations. In Phase 2, CDC will transition to 
full-scale program implementation and evaluation involving 
approximately 600 employers and other organizations.
    CDC is requesting OMB approval to initiate Phase 1 information 
collection in summer 2013. A one-time Training Needs Assessment Survey 
will be administered electronically to 200 employers representing 
small, mid-size, and large businesses from various industry sectors and 
geographic locales. The needs assessment survey will allow CDC to 
assess employer preferences with respect to curriculum content, the 
types of support materials needed by employers and the appropriate 
level of detail for these materials, and the best approaches for 
providing technical assistance to employers. The estimated

burden per response for the needs assessment survey is 20 minutes.
    The results of the needs assessment will inform the development of 
the Work@Health training curriculum and delivery methods. CDC 
anticipates that training will be offered in four models (formats): (1) 
A ``Hands-on'' instructor-led workshop model (T1), (2) a self-paced 
``Online'' model (T2), (3) a combination or ``Blended'' model (T3), and 
(4) a ``Train-the-Trainer'' model (T4) designed to prepare qualified 
individuals to train employers through the Hands-on, Online, or Blended 
models.
    Employers who are interested in participating in Work@Health 
training will be asked to complete a Pilot Employer Application Form. 
To be eligible for the T1-T3 pilot trainings, employers must have a 
minimum of 30 employees, a valid business license, and have been in 
business for at least one year. In addition, they must offer health 
insurance to their employees and have minimal workplace health program 
knowledge and experience. To be eligible for the T4 training model, 
applicants may be employers, health departments, business coalitions, 
trade associations, or other organizations. Participants in the T4 
training must have previous knowledge, training and experience with 
workplace health programs, and an interest in becoming facilitators for 
the Work@Health program.
    CDC anticipates the receipt of approximately 400 applications. CDC 
will use the application information to select 72 respondents for Phase 
1 pilot training and evaluation activities (18 respondents per model). 
Three-fourths of these individuals will represent small and mid-size 
employers. Upon completion of the pilot training, each participant will 
be asked to complete a 15-20 minute evaluation survey. The customized 
survey questions will allow CDC to assess respondent satisfaction with 
the procedures, methods, content and strategies employed in each 
workplace health training model. The information collected in the pilot 
training evaluation surveys will inform future modifications and 
improvements to the training based on employers' experiences, needs, 
and recommendations. Only the evaluation survey for the Online model 
pilot will be the administered electronically, all others will be 
paper/pencil surveys.
    Participation is voluntary and there are no costs to participants 
other than their time. A separate information collection request will 
be submitted to obtain OMB approval for Phase 2 information collection.
