Determining an Employee’s Level of Health

While some jobs can be done well by even those in relatively poor health, the healthier and happier your staff members are, the better job they will be able to do for your business. With this in mind, it is well worthwhile taking stock of where everyone is at with their health. The following is a short guide to determining an employee’s level of health.

Why?

  • Minimise injury risk: Knowing the current state of your employees’ health will allow you to minimise the risk of them becoming injured, as you can provide any extra support your employees may need. A better-supported chair can make a world of difference to someone with a history of neck injuries, and knowing that someone is suffering from severe ‘morning sickness’ will help explain their tardiness. The better you are able to tailor your workplace to suit the needs of your employees, the less likely they will be to injure themselves. If any employee is returning from an injury, be sure to have your injury management advisor involved in helping transition them back into the workplace.

Is Your Business Exposed to Negligence Claims?

On of the worst things that can happen to a business is to lose staff to a workplace injury, but it’s even worse if you’re hit with a negligence case to boot. Your business has a duty of care to its workers that you need to take very seriously, because if not, you may find yourself seriously out of pocket, paying for an incident you should have been able to prevent. Make sure your business is doing all it can for the safety of everyone there, and keep the following tips in mind if you are planning to have all your bases covered.

Safety gear

The easiest way to end up with a negligence case is to fail to provide your employees with all of the safety equipment they may need to be able to do their job safely and properly. Without providing safety equipment to your workers, you may not only find yourself with a negligence claim on your hands, but if you do you are almost definitely going to lose. So don’t skimp on safety gear for yourself or your workers, because while you may get away with it, it is just not worth the risk.

Judge the level of interest

Best Ways to Increase Worker’s Health

The health of your workers is extremely important — not just because anyone’s health is important, but because without your workers your business would be nothing. Show that you care about your workers and respect them as fellow human beings by going a little way further to ensure they are operating in full health. The following ideas are all sure to help.

Healthy snacks and drinks

Most workplaces offer some sort of complimentary staff room items, and it is usually limited to tea, coffee and the occasional box of donuts. What your workers eat will have a big impact on how healthy they are, so spend a little extra money and invest in some healthy options for your staff. Water, juice and organic fruits and vegetables in good supply will do wonders for your workers’ health; you could even plan an office garden together.
