Health promotion programmes can be set up in line with individual business requests to promote and improve the health of employees.
Encouraging healthier lifestyle choices can have health benefits for employees and therefore businesses.
Onsite Health Assessments
On site health assessments for your employees (e.g. cholesterol testing, blood pressure checks, discussion about diet, smoking, alcohol etc).
Comprehensive Health Promotion Checks
We can provide employees with a comprehensive health check particularly important for key / senior personnel in your business. Offering employees such health checks not only shows your commitment to their health and well being but can also have a positive impact on your business by contributing to reduced absences and improved staff morale.
The main aims of a health check are:
- To identify pre-existing health problems
- To assess risk factors for disease
- To provide recommendations on lifestyle and health that will encourage a longer and healthier life
Included in the health checks:
- Health and lifestyle questionnaire
- Lifestyle advice
and may include:
- Test for Diabetes
- Body mass index calculation
- Body fat percentage
- Blood pressure and pulse
- Resting ECG (optional)
- Coronary Risk Score
- Vision test
- Hearing test
- Lung function test
- Fitness assessment using the Chester Step Test
- Urine test
- Blood analysis
- Lifestyle advice – Alcohol, Smoking, Diet, etc.
Following the health check a comprehensive written report is provided giving details of all test results and recommendations and advice on lifestyle issues to help improve health and reduce the risk of future illness.
It is also recommended that a copy of this report is sent to the individuals’ GP.
We can organise health events for you to raise awareness on health and lifestyle issues to promote health and well being within your business.
