AmEx sees return on investment in its employees

A strong commitment to employee safety and health led American Express® (AmEx®) to take the top prize in the 2013 Corporate Health Achievement Awards (CHAA), presented by the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM). The award is based on four categories: leadership and management, healthy workers, healthy environment, and healthy organization.

Judges especially liked the emphasis by American Express on safety and accident prevention. Their ergonomics program, considered a model, offers free, web-based training available in five languages. The financial services giant was recognized for an integrated data warehouse, which allows for ongoing research and analysis of programs. Health and incentive programs ranked high as well, as did programs that target employee stress and promote overall well-being.

Many organizations use the CHAA criteria as benchmarks to create and improve their own safety and health programs. The awards program, established in 1997, requires extensive documentation of programs and practices and an on-site visit by a team of evaluators. Regardless of whether they win an award, applicants in the competition receive valuable feedback from the ACOEM. Learn more at
