Wellbeing in the workplace

Wellbeing in the workplace

There is a growing body of evidence to support the business case for implementing a Wellbeing in the Workplace Strategy. Promoting wellbeing at work and healthier lifestyle choices which support staff health can improve staff morale and increase productivity.

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

Also included in a wellbeing in the workplace strategy:

  • test for diabetes
  • body mass index calculation
  • body fat percentage
  • blood pressure and pulse
  • risk factors for heart disease
  • vision test
  • hearing test
  • lung function test
  • urine test
  • lifestyle advice – alcohol, smoking, diet etc

We can offer:

  • Health Checks – individual health assessments focusing on heart health, healthy eating, lung function and exercise
  • Health Promotion Awareness Days
  • Stress Awareness Days
  • Know Your Numbers Week – blood pressure checks
  • Mental Health Awareness Week

DSE Assessments

The use of Display Screen Equipment (laptops, desktops) in the workplace is at the highest it has ever been, so it is important to ensure you are compliant with the legislation and employees are comfortable at their workstation. The workforce of today are living increasingly sedentary lifestyles, so it is important to raise awareness and educate, therefore minimizing the risk of pain from DSE use. Furthermore, employees using Display Screen Equipment must be offered an eye test by their employer, in line with HSE guidance.

Helping your employees to be comfortable and sit correctly at their workstation can promote wellbeing in the workplace and increase productivity. Sarsen Health DSE Assessments include intermediate vision eye tests, assessment of workstations and advice on posture and wellbeing at work.

What we offer:

  • DSE assessments – a paper assessment and onsite review of ergonomic set up, advice on posture and workstation set up
  • Ergonomic assessments for those with complex health problems and advice on adjustments.
