A brief summary of why we became a healthy workplace

We also feel it is important to take care of ourselves as well as our patients.  If we are not on top form we cannot hope to serve our patients well.

          

Recent health and well being activities

Since taking part in the Healthy Workplace scheme our staff have taken many initiatives to improve their health such as stopping smoking, joining regular exercise classes and becoming more aware of health issues such as sun safety, back care and controlling stress.

Plans/aims for the next year

We hope to take part in the Active Workplace Challenge this year and to continue our good work.

The scheme has allowed all the staff to join together in a common purpose no matter what their level of health or fitness. I myself only ever surfed on the sofa and now I have discovered how much I enjoy exercise and how beneficial it is to body and soul. My message to others is that you should never be afraid to exercise. It doesn't matter what or how much you do as long as you are moving and being active in our fantastic Cornish environment.

St. Austell Brewery won a gold award on their first year of taking part in the programme. Chrissie Knight, Occupational Health Manager for the brewery, commented, “Caring for and investing in the workforce has always been a priority at the Brewery and it is wonderful to gain recognition for the work that takes place at all levels to ensure that we remain an employer of choice for people in the South West, which is not only because of the opportunities that exist at many levels within the organisation, but also because of the support and benefits that exist for all employees”

Success Story

My name is Tony King and I'm part of the Maintenance Team at YMCA Cornwall.  When I first started working here, I spotted the Cycle to Work Scheme on a poster so I thought I would enquire about it.

It's very easy to set up; you can get up to £1000 which covers the cost of the bike, a lock, helmet and lights.  All you had to do was go to the bike shop and choose your bike.

Since getting my bike, I've now been cycling for the past 18 months from Hayle (to Penzance) which is 11 miles.  I feel fitter, I've lost weight and it has got me into cycling having been cycling in France and Belgium.  Next year I'm going cycling in Holland.

All in all, it's a good scheme and I would highly recommend it.
