Health Promotion can be cost effective in the workplace, by having a number of beneficial effects:
Early detection of health problems allows the opportunity to act before they lead to absence or poor capability at work.
Effective Health Promotion increases morale, leading to more healthier happier & more motivated employees. This will have a positive effect on employees production & quality.
We can tailor any Health Promotion activiites to suit your workforce & business needs. Some of our past activities have included:
Displays, models, leaflets etc for employees to visit.
Health Professionals on hand to give advice about any relevant subject including demonstrating how to 'check for lumps' using silicone models, diet advice etc
Health tests available include cholesterol testing, diabetes check, BP, fat% measurement, lung testing, urine testing.
Follow up advice regarding results, including smoking cessation support (with vouchers for nicotine replacement therapy).
Written sheet for each employee to take away, including results & advice on how to improve them.
Employees attend individual appointments. They undergo a number of supervised tests for their physical flexibility & strength.
Difficulties in managing any individual test highlights a potential problem. The employee is then shown specific improvement exercises.
Each employee recieves an illustrated booklet containing their results & details of the improvement exercises required.
