The correct answer to this question is an option – A Establishing a physical exercise area and encouraging in the workplace and encourages all employees to use it is an example of primary prevention. Primary prevention is defined as measures taken to prevent the development of a disease or disability in healthy individuals.

Secondary prevention is measures taken to help detect diseases in early stages and to help prevent the worsening of the condition — examples: screening for dental caries and screening for cancer. Tertiary prevention focuses more on improving the quality of life and also reduces symptoms of a person that has the disease already. Example: using composite filling on dental caries. Passive prevention does not require any change or action from the part of the individual.

In the workforce, workers are often working more hours nowadays than they did before. This means that there is less time for working out and getting exercise. Many employers see their workers sitting behind a desk for many hours a day. They need to get some exercise.

Some companies are encouraging their workers to get more exercise by providing better health care and funding gym memberships. Some have even created a workout room somewhere in their building for their workers to use. Employees are encouraged to use it.

When the company is doing this, the health insurance company may be asking them to do this and making the insurance costs to be lowered. When this occurs, the company is creating a level of primary prevention.

Primary prevention refers to actions that people take that can help them avoid developing specific health problems. These problems include diseases, sicknesses, injuries, or conditions that are detrimental to the body. These behaviors are conducted before the problems occur.

This also helps to save time and also money for healthcare. Primary prevention is the practice of altering negative or unhealthy behaviors that can lead to an unfavorable condition, as well as engaging in healthier lifestyle choices. It also involves increasing your resistance to diseases if illness does occur.
