Workplace Health Assessement for Staff Health & Vaccinations in Albany, Auckland
For a lot of common health problems, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, simple screenings can make a huge difference in your ability to manage and live with these conditions. Just knowing if you’ve developed one of these issues — or are at risk to do so — can help you find effective treatment early and avoid unnecessary complications. These screenings are relatively easy to perform and can be conducted right at your workplace.
In fact, since 2000, Onsite Health has been offering onsite workplace health checks in Albany and across the greater Auckland region. These straightforward health checks are conducted by a Registered Nurse and are meant to identify potentially dangerous health issues that commonly affect working age people. While most people understand the need to have screenings for these common health issues regularly, it can be hard to find the time and remember to do so. Bringing a health assessment right to the workplace eliminates the hassle and helps ensure your workforce is in good health.
The Albany Workplace Health Assessment
For the Albany workplace health assessment, each employee will get a 15-minute individual check with an Onsite Health Registered Nurse where we’ll check major health indicators like blood pressure, body mass index, and cholesterol and glucose levels. This data allows us to assess each employee’s risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes. With CVD accounting for as many as 40% of deaths in New Zealand every year, it’s essential to get these screenings done, which is why Onsite Health has sought to make it as easy as possible to take this important step with our mobile MedCheck program.
At the end of an Albany corporate medical check, individual recommendations are provided by our nurses and all information is stored in our secure and private system. From there, we can also provide an overall workplace health report which can help you identify trends and problems. After the initial visit, the individuals results will be brought back with the Nurse at the following years annual visit.
Onsite and Uncomplicated
When we started bringing basic medical services to workplaces around the Auckland region — both the MedCheck assessment and mobile flu vaccine services — the goal was to help New Zealanders get essential health checks right at work, eliminating the missed time that comes with going into a clinic. We also found these simple medical checks were useful to the businesses we work with, providing a better picture of organisational health and helping management teams keep a healthy and productive workforce together. Sick days is a significant factor in workplace productivity, and the effects of having a healthy (and happy) workforce are extensive. In fact, even working with other healthy people can improve employee’s productivity.
Thankfully, keeping your employees in good health is easy with Onsite Health’s mobile health services. Since we come right to you, it’s easy to make sure everyone is on the same page. All you need to do is find a day when most of your employees are available and provide a location for our nurses to set up the MedCheck service.
