NASA Occupational Health Information

NASA Occupational Medicine policy is to minimize sick absences and reduced productivity due to marginal physical disability, permanent disability, or premature death. This is accomplished by providing to employees Physical Fitness Programs to help control and reduce health risk factors, such as sedentary lifestyle, obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes, and also, by offering post-cardiac and post-injury rehabilitation services.
