A Structured Health Programme

Providing health and wellbeing resources and facilities for the workforce is essential for any company, particularly in this intensive industry. However it is important to establish a structured and thorough service.

It is not sufficient enough to lightly cover a topic, the information and services available must meet demand, cover all possible risks and also go the step further by making the employee feel they are taken care of and secure.

One site achieved this through the examples below:

  • An exceptionally well structured and comprehensive health programme for all operatives;
  • All site personnel were given health checks and this information (health and lifestyle) was reviewed and findings shared on site (confirming the health of the workforce);
  • DVD played on TV monitor in canteen;
  • All personnel given own personal health plan and how this compares with acceptable standards;
  • Followed up with a Health Week and all site personnel given a health manual to highlight health matters and increase knowledge and hopefully wellbeing;
  • Monthly health topics promoted, e.g. know your numbers – blood pressure.
