Our Stories

Wellness Fitness Program

In 2013, the Los Angeles Airport Police initiated a Wellness Fitness Program to provide LAWA employees an opportunity to participate in a program that focuses on enhancing personal health in order to improve workplace productivity. The program begins with a one-week orientation that covers nutrition, exercise techniques to prevent or reduce injuries, and an optional physical exam to evaluate weight, cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels. Then, participants take part in two 50-minute long workout sessions for six weeks. At the end of six weeks, participants receive a certificate of completion. In 2014, 134 employees participated in the program.

Annual Health Fair & Employee Appreciation Day

In partnership with local health care service providers and non-profit health advocacy groups, LAWA hosts an annual Health Fair & Employee Appreciation Day at each of the three airports. Employees can inquiry about various health and wellness topics, check their blood pressure, and more. LAWA is mindful of employees who work outside the normal 9-to-5 schedule and makes sure to schedule an event during day and graveyard shifts.
