Health Promotion Service, Redruth

At the Health Promotion Service, we have set up a workplace health working group, conducted two health at work questionnaires and have been trying to look at how we can improve the health of our staff!

We have a great team and to date we now have a ‘Kernow Building Gardening Club’, ‘A Choir’ and have organised a wide range of activities, taster sessions and events including:

  • Healthy Lunchtime Walks
  • Step-o-meter Challenge
  • Honesty Snack Box
  • Physical Activity Sessions -
  • Massage & Reflexology sessions
  • Introducing a Mentoring Scheme
  • Love Yourself, Look after Your Heart
  • Active Travel Days
  • Delivery of  'Healthy Boxes' weekly
  • Craft sessions
  • Obtained two pool bikes
  • Dedicated Health at Work notice board
  • Entered a team in the 2009 Race for Life!

We hold regular workplace health working group meetings and our aim is to continue to try and improve staff health and well-being here at Health Promotion.

I was in my previous post for nearly six years and there was no workplace health programme at all.

When I started here and found what is available to staff, often delivered by other staff, I was really impressed and have been trying all sorts of things!

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.
