HSI Sensing Certified as an Oklahoma Healthy Business

HSI Sensing (formerly Hermetic Switch, Inc.) was recently honored by the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) as an Oklahoma Certified Healthy Business. Supported by the Oklahoma Academy, The State Chamber, and the Oklahoma Turning Point Council , this award is given each year to a select group of Oklahoma companies that provide health and wellness opportunities for their employees and that are working to improve the health status of Oklahomans.

According to OSDH, to be certified a business must meet specific criteria, including providing employee health screenings, workplace health and nutrition education, opportunities for physical exercise activities, management support for healthy workplace environments, tobacco use prevention activities, and sharing wellness activities within their respective communities.

“The Certified Healthy Oklahoma programs are an exciting way to expand the ‘Shape Your Future’ health initiative that challenges Oklahomans to eat better, move more and be tobacco free,” said State Health Commissioner Dr. Terry Cline. “Through the „Certified Healthy‟ programs, Oklahomans are creating an environment where the healthy choice is the easy choice. The increasing number of applicants every year speaks loudly about the commitment of these entities to improve the health of people in our state,” he said.

“We‟re thrilled to receive this award for the second year in a row,” says HSI Sensing Vice President of Operations Ryan Posey. “A healthy workforce is paramount to our success, both collectively and individually. The wellness programs and health screenings we offer are the right things to do for our employees . . . and they‟re the right things to do for our business.”

HSI Sensing personnel attended an awards ceremony honoring all 480 Oklahoma Certified Healthy Businesses earlier this month.
