Workplace Case Studies

Jewson’s Ltd (Widnes)

Keith Jenkins (Store Manager)

I would like to thank you for a fantastic day today. The display that you set up generated great interest and the buy in to the health checks with Pam were second to non – we even got an extra appointment! We generated £235 for the Pancreatic Cancer Fund with generous donations from our customers on the day. We would love to do this again next year!

Tesco Distribution Centre (Widnes)

Hilary Jackson (People & Safety Manager)

We used your services in February for our colleagues and out of the 6 weeks your guys were here we only had one day where we didn’t fill all the appointment slots. We’ve had some great feedback from our guys/ girls who participated and the advice given to them from your team was fantastic! Although I was told I need to lose some weight and stop smoking !!

At Tesco we strive to always put our colleagues first and have done various different Health & Safety schemes and roadshows over the years and I would recommend your services to other employers across the area without hesitation. Thanks again.

Howdens Joinery (Runcorn)

Janet McGettigan (Occupational Health Advisor)

I would just like to say how fantastic Alison has been through the duration of the programme. Throughout the programme she has been committed, enthusiastic and non-judgmental. I consider that is a real credit to her that employees have continued to step forward and look for support throughout the duration of the programme.

Given the many shift systems we have in place it has not always been easy to see everyone each week but when necessary Alison has provided telephone support. I cannot thank her enough and very much appreciate the work your department has done. This work really does change lives and health outcomes.

WSR Recycling Limited (Widnes)

Michelle Lloyd – Assoc CIPD (HR Advisor & PA to the Directors)

WSR Recycling Limited liaised with the Halton Health Improvement Team regarding the Workplace Health Check Service they provide. WSR decided to utilise this service as it fitted well with WSR’s Health & Wellbeing aspirations for helping their staff.  The sessions were well received by WSR staff and the sessions went smoothly and to plan. The NHS staff were very professional, approachable and knowledgeable. It’s a great way to support your staff and promote good health and wellbeing. Would recommend this service.

Workplace health Award

Halton Borough Councils Public Health are committed to supporting local businesses to improve the health and wellbeing of its employees, regardless of size, sector or familiarity with the subject. We want to give all employers the opportunity to participate in our Healthy Workplace Award Scheme. Many employers are unaware of the benefits associated with investing in health and wellbeing and are unaware of the information, initiatives and advice that can be provided to employees to affect a change.

For small and medium-sized ​​organisations, affordable and sources of support and advice are not readily accessible.

Participation in the Healthy Workplace Award scheme will provide a framework for organisations of all sizes to promote health and wellbeing in their workplace. The Award scheme provides evidence based resources and advocates best practice to support a workplace culture and positive actions, which champion good mental and physical health for all.

Workplace Health Needs Assessment

As Employers we know we have a responsibility to protect and support the health and wellbeing of their staff. We know that companies that work with staff to develop approaches that invest in the health and wellbeing of their staff see higher rates of retention, reduced sickness absence and increased productivity.

Sometimes it can be hard to understand where to prioritise investment in staff health and wellbeing, especially when moving beyond the basic health and safety legislative requirements. A health needs assessment can be a useful and simple way to gather anonymous information about the health of a company’s workforce and also provides a baseline of data against which to track progress. This document provides a tested tool to carry out a workplace health needs assessment. It is for employers of all types and sizes. It provides practical advice including survey questions and advice on their use with workplace health.

Workplace NHS Health Checks

Do not miss out on your FREE Health Checks in the workplace.

NHS Health Checks are being offered to people aged between 40 and 74.

The check is to assess your risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, stroke and dementia. If there are any warning signs, then we can help you to do something about it.

The check should take about 30-40 minutes and we will take details of your height, weight, age and blood pressure. The check also includes a blood test to check your blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Following the health check, you will receive free personalised advice about what you can do to stay healthy. Your health Check Officer will also be able to tell you more about our lifestyle services.
