ITW Food Equipment Group Helps
Employees and Local Kids Stay Healthy

The health fair at ITW Food Equipment Group (FEG) in Troy, OH is a two-day event featuring door prizes, interactive booths, and speakers on topics ranging from safety to sustainability. In past fairs, organizers have invited representatives from the local fire and police departments, the American Red Cross, and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to address bicycle safety, safe driving, first aid kits for tornado season and gas cap checks. The fair also educates employees about alternative approaches to wellness. And with roughly 90 percent attendance, the fair is a good opportunity to increase participation in ITW’s free biometric health screening program. The fair is just one part of FEG’s plan to keep health top of mind for its 400 employees. An FEG employee also established an immensely popular kids triathlon; many employees now support the event, with proceeds benefitting a local United Way chapter.
