One of the best ways to reduce the problem of sickness in the workplace is to prevent health problems happening in the first place. We can advise on simple yet effective initiatives, which have proven benefit for both the individual employee and their organisation.
We will look at the main health issues in your organisation and tailor a programme to meet your needs.
Health promotion may be a simple 'Hearing Conservation Programme' or providing information regarding pregnancy at work. Or it might be a management driven smoking cessation campaign due to sickness absence from respiratory infections. Whatever your needs we can help to plan and implement a solution.
Health education regarding common problems is useful in dispelling myths that may give rise to unwarranted perceptions and lead to unnecessary time off work. A common example would be lower back pain. We can educate employees so that they have realistic expectations and can make sensible and informed decisions regarding their health.
Health issues may vary greatly between organisations, however core themes exist; ranging from smoking and other lifestyle choices, to lower back pain, stress, or cancer awareness.
