ARCOL UK Ltd

Manufacture and supply of power resistors

What we do:

Manufacture and supply of power resistors and heat sinks to the electrical sector

Why we became a healthy workplace:

 Becoming a Healthy Workplace was the obvious next step, after the site had already made significant improvements in the workplace. The chance to gain recognition for this work and provide an endorsement from an external assessment bolsters the work already undertaken and provides a further drive to improve.

Recent health and well being activities:

Improved/ bespoke PPE for employees
Raised awareness of healthy living
Free fruit week to coincide with sugar awareness week
Whole site noise survey check
Cancer awareness training
Mental Health First Aider training
Additional First Aiders trained
ASIST training
Occupational Health for all employees

 

 

Success Story:

No individual case - there have been many cases where the wellbeing of individuals have benefited.
Occupational Health provider has been able to encourage employees to seek help for issues and has also been able to chase up appointments on their behalf.
Karen's MHFA training has proved beneficial, giving her a far better understanding of the scope of the issue, providing her with some of the tools to provide support.
The biggest single gain from this, I believe has been the increased awareness around wellbeing, whether it be physical or mental. We are getting far more interaction from employees since we started the Healthy Workplace award, with individuals keen to promote their own chosen activity.

“The Manufacturing Sector is a demanding area driven by Customer Satisfaction and Key Measurable achievement. Healthy Cornwall has helped to remind us that without a healthy workforce we would not be able to achieve our goals and continue to grow and offer security to the individuals that make our company such a fantastic place to work. Working toward the Healthy Workplace Award has allowed us to change the focus and emphasis of our culture in relation to our attitude towards health and wellbeing. We now benefit from lower absenteeism and far higher participation at events both inside and out of work initiated through our relationship with the Healthy Workplace Scheme.” Director, ARCOL UK Ltd.

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.
Employee Feedback

"I am lucky to work for an organisation whose management has whole-heartedly supported me throughout the process of obtaining the Healthy Workplace Awards.  The Directors have never said ‘no’ and it is great to know that my employer is interested in everyone’s well-being at work.  Not only have they approved my initiatives but they have also led by example and joined in some of them too.  They have committed, what are for us, scarce resources and agreed more flexible working policies as well as offering support to staff who may struggle with work or with personal problems through solid employment policies and management techniques"- Louise Mallas, YMCA Cornwall
