MANUFACTURING AT Toray Plastics (America) Inc. happens 24 hours a day, seven days a week. That could make it difficult for late-night shift workers to participate in health programs.

That’s why Toray brings wellness to them. The polypropylene and polyester film maker hosts health-focused activities in places such as break rooms at its plants, during all shifts. It also offers on-site fitness and wellness centers at its North Kingstown headquarters.

The company’s Holistic Wellness Program rewards employees for taking part in financial, physical and mental health sessions, and for going in for annual checkups and dental visits. Toray’s recent clean-plate challenge encouraged employees to try one new healthy food every day for a month. Employees who tried 30 foods from the company’s recommended list had a chance at a raffle prize.

Toray also encourages spouses and dependents to take part in wellness fairs, community road races, charity walks, flu shot clinics and other wellness initiatives.
