Total Worker Health

The DIA has partnered with the Mount Sinai Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health and Mount Sinai Primary Care Associates to offer a customized, comprehensive health program designed to address all aspects of Detective Investigators’ health care needs and improve the general health and well-being of members.

Many DIA members clock in more than 50 hours a week, and are always at the ready to take a call, follow up on a lead, and close a case successfully. Where does our health fit into this rigorous, nonstop schedule? When we talk to our doctors, do we talk about how our job impacts our health, or how our health impacts our job? Studies show that specific occupations have shared health risks. Police work is intense and inherently stressful. Law enforcement personnel are exposed to dangerous work environments and repeated traumatic events. Extended or unusual work shifts also can lead to fatigue and stress. Studies show that these unique conditions put Officers at greater risk for high blood pressure, insomnia, heart problems, post-traumatic stress disorder, and depression.

While employers in other professions recognize more and more the unique health concerns of their employees and offer access to tailored health and wellness services at their worksites, the law enforcement community does not have the luxury of a traditional office job as we are always on the move.

The DIA Total Worker Health™ Program will provide access to top doctors and specialists throughout the Mount Sinai Health System who understand the unique health care needs of the law enforcement community. A specialized primary care visit and consult with a health coach will help members gain a new perspective on their health and learn how to maximize health outcomes to be more successful at work and in life. The Program provides members access to primary care physicians, health care specialists, health coaches, and occupational medicine physicians with expertise in addressing work-related health concerns common in the law enforcement community. The Total Worker Health™ program integrates traditional primary care with health promotion services to provide education, encourage positive behavior change, and enhance fitness in the workplace. Personal health information will be treated confidentially and will not be disclosed to DIA or other parties.
