Proposed Project CDC Worksite Health ScoreCard (CDC ScoreCard) (OMB Control No. 0920– 1014, Exp. 3/31/2022)—Extension— 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) developed an online organizational assessment tool called the CDC Worksite Health Scorecard. The CDC Worksite Health Scorecard is a tool designed to help employers assess whether they have implemented evidence-based health promotion interventions or strategies in their worksites to prevent heart disease, stroke, and related conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, and obesity. The assessment contains 151 core yes/no questions with an additional 20 optional demographic questions divided into 19 E:\FR\FM\27SEN1.SGM 27SEN1 53316 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 184 / Monday, September 27, 2021 / Notices modules (risk factors/conditions/ demographics) that assess how evidence-based health promotion strategies are implemented at a worksite. These strategies include health promoting counseling services, environmental supports, policies, health plan benefits, and other worksite programs shown to be effective in preventing disease and promoting healthy lifestyles for employees. Employers can use this tool to assess how a comprehensive health promotion and disease prevention program is offered to their employees, to help identify program gaps, and to prioritize high-impact health promotion strategies to be incorporated into their programs. This is an Extension Information Collection Request (ICR) enabling existing users, as well as new users to continue to have access to the CDC ScoreCard, a web-based organizational assessment tool designed to help employers identify gaps in their health promotion programs and prioritize highimpact strategies for health promotion at their worksites (available at http:// www.cdc.gov/healthscorecard). CDC ScoreCard users will create a user account, complete the online assessment, and receive an immediate feedback report that summarizes the current status of their worksite health program; identifies gaps in current programming; benchmarks individual employer results against other users of the system; and provides access to worksite health tools and resources to address employer gaps and priority program areas. To realize the full benefit of the tool, employers are encouraged to reassess their progress on an annual basis and track improvements over time. CDC will continue to provide outreach to and to register approximately 800 employers per year to use the online survey CDC ScoreCard in their workplace health program assessment, planning, and implementation efforts. CDC Scorecard is open to employers of all sizes, industry sectors, and geographic locations across the country. CDC will continue to use the information gathered from the Scorecard to provide better technical assistance, training, and support to employers seeking guidance on building or maintaining workplace health promotion programs including tool and resource development for program planning, implementation, and evaluation related to the CDC ScoreCard’s strategies. OMB approval is requested for three years. CDC requests approval for an estimated 1,000 burden hours annually. Participation is voluntary and there are no costs to respondents other than their time.
