Well Health Assessments have been developed from the National Heart Foundation Guidelines.
Well Health checks comprise of: Height, Weight, BMI, Cholesterol, Blood Sugar, Blood Pressure checks and a Complete Cardiovascular risk questionnaire.
The aim of these Assessments is to help and assist employees to maintain optimum health. They also allow individuals an opportunity to discuss any known health issues on a confidential basis with a nurse.
With many corporate employees often working longer hours, sitting for lengthy periods of time, facing growing job responsibilities or stress to meet deadlines etc. we often see High Blood Pressure, increased weight gain and High Cholesterol levels in some corporate working environments.
In the long-term, these health ‘issues’ will result in staff taking time off work.
When corporate companies offer Well Health checks to their staff it enables employees to discuss and decide on sensible lifestyle changes through health promotion, education and advice.
Plus, our nurses will refer employees with identified health issues to their medical practitioner for further assessment.
The individual results of each employee are kept confidential however following the completion of the assessments, employers will be provided with a summary report comparing the company results with national averages.
This report provides companies with an overview of the general wellbeing of their workforce.
