A workplace initiative aimed to target at-risk employees for COVID-19 and Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is an important initiative. Current recommendations from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for both COVID-19 and CVD focus on controllable risk factors.

This paper is a proposed intervention that applies the Health Behavior Model (HBM) and the Transtheoretical Model (TTM) to address how a worksite intervention can help minimize the severity of COVID-19 symptoms and reduce Abstract The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has resulted in social and working environments that have significantly changed.

This includes policies of anti-contagion measures, requiring and providing health care workers with personal protective equipment, and the implemenation of health promotion programs to enhance quality of life for employees. The Health Belief Model (HBM) and the Transtheoretical Model (TTM) are theortetical frameworks that can assist to deliver work-related health promotion programs. This mini review is an intervention proposal in order to provide approaches to better understand and provide assistance relative to the health and well-being of worksite employees.
