This investigation examined the impact of a Health and Physical Readiness Program on Naval Air Station productivity from January 1983 to June 1984 at Pensacola, Florida. Overall scores on the Navy Health and Physical Readiness Test were compared with Aircraft Maintenance Data and Medical Morbidity Reports. Results indicate a dramatic improvement in overall Health and Physical Readiness scores. A significant decrease in the maintenance manhours and repair turn around time was noted for a constant output of items processed. Medical data revealed significant reductions in injuries, motor vehicle accidents, circulatory diseases, alcoholic treatments and weight control cases. Allowing for the dynamic leadership provided by the Commanding Officer and Executive Officer to the Naval Air Station, it still appears that the Health and Physical Readiness Program had a positive impact on Naval Air Station productivity.
