Ambrosia (Premier Foods)

Manufacture of Ambrosia Rice Pudding and Custard

What we do:

Famously 100 years old this year we make pots and tins of custard and rice pudding, using local resources wherever possible, especially Devon cream and milk. We are a continuously running business with operators working day and night shifts.

Why we became a healthy workplace:

In order to promote health in the workplace and improve health year on year through one to one encounters and group education.

Recent health and well being activities:

Know Your Numbers event in September.
This is a drop in event run over 2 days to help people identify their blood pressure/weight/and units of alcohol consumed in order to promote improvements in lifestyle. Stop Smoking advice given where needed.
Summer Cycle challenge, Raft race and a day of varied walks. These were all very successful.

 

Success Story:

I have been delighted to see a number of people stop smoking this year, and also an individual who decided to lose weight to help with a musculoskeletal problem.

 

Cancer and Work
Cancer kills around 1.2 million people each year in the European Union. Between
65 000 and 100 000 of these deaths are believed to be directly caused by working conditions. Others are the result of environmental exposures which, in many cases, are themselves related to firms’ business activities.
Communication

Establishing and using effective channels of communication that engage employees are a key component in promoting employee health.  Examples: Health Notice Boards, Team Briefings, Internet/Intranet, Email, Wage Packet Inserts, Staff Surveys.
