Workplace Health Awareness Sessions
All employers need, and want, a happy and healthy workforce. Educating employees to develop a healthy lifestyle and assisting them in maintaining their health and well-being, both physically and psychologically, is a key part of helping to achieve this.
A recent study by the British Heart Foundations (BHF) found the impact of work pressures cause concerns to long term health risks.
Lincoln Occupational Health can deliver a ‘Health Awareness Day’ at your workplace which provides an effective way of promoting health and well-being to your employees. The programme is designed not only to benefit the individual but also to support management in helping to reduce absenteeism and in promoting a healthier workforce. The programme is run by an experienced and qualified Nurse Advisor who can offer:
- Blood Pressure Checks;
- Cholesterol and Blood Sugar Checks;
- Height and Weight Measurements, Body Mass Index (BMI) and Body Fat Percentage;
- General Lifestyle Advice to include diet, exercise, smoking and alcohol.
The tests are designed to assess non-fasting blood samples and each sample involves a prick test only. After each employee consultation, the results are discussed in confidence with the employee and given to them on a feedback sheet to take away along with any relevant health promotion literature. He/she will be referred on to their GP should further medical advice or a retest be appropriate.
At the end of the entire session, verbal feedback can be given to the employer on some of the general workplace health issues/behaviours which have been identified which may be impacting on employee health and welfare. This is an opportunity for employers to discuss such issues as absenteeism and stress. (Please note that all individual consultations/results will be treated in the strictest confidence – general feedback only will be given to management).
