Abstract
OBJECTIVE: To assess the utility of a Worksite Health Promotion Readiness Checklist (WRCL) designed to evaluate the worksite's readiness for implementing health promotion and health protection programs. METHODS: The WRCL was pilot tested in worksites with (WHPy) and without (WHPn) health promotion programs. The two parts of WRCL scores (observational and administrative) for WHPy and WHPn sites were compared within and between the worksites to establish WRCL utility and sensitivity. RESULTS: Observational WRCL (completed by two observers per site) demonstrated high interrater reliability (P < 0.05) for most items. Administrative WRCL (completed by three administrators per site) showed some discrepant responses between administrators. Overall, both sections of WRCL produced higher scores for WHPy sites. CONCLUSIONS: WRCL could be a valid and reliable instrument to measure readiness of a worksite toward health promotion and health protection programs.
