This Evidence Check review examines what types of primary prevention programs in the workplace are most likely to be effective in changing risk factors and reducing rates of chronic disease. Strong evidence was found in relation to workplace programs on tobacco control, physical activity, nutrition, and stress as well as multi-component programs. The report also reviews indicative evidence in other areas.
