SARASOTA, FL – Crystal Clean Green Cleaning has been named a Gold Level Healthy Sarasota County Worksite by the Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County (DOH-Sarasota). The cleaning company joins eleven worksites in Sarasota County awarded with a designation after a comprehensive review of programs and environmental supports to improve employee health and well-being.

We have to commit to do all we can for the families that reside in our town – whether a business is large or small.”
The Healthy Sarasota County Worksite program, administered through DOH-Sarasota, designates employers who implement specific health promotion activities endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). These activities are evidenced-based and proven to improve the health and well-being of employees. Areas addressed include nutrition, physical activity, weight management, tobacco control, stress management, diabetes, vaccine preventable disease prevention, and breastfeeding support among others.
