Health Screening

Why it’s important?

32 % of Australian employees experienced a medical condition in the three months preceding the survey

This includes:

  • back and neck pain (29%)
  • heart disease (21%)
  • high blood pressure (19%)
  • migraine headaches (14%)
  • asthma (13%)
  • Significantly, 10% of those surveyed reported that they were suffering from depression.

 

How we improve it?

Workplace health assessments (20 minutes) 1-per year, per person

A workplace health assessment is the process of gathering information about the factors that support and/or hinder the health of workers and identifying potential opportunities to address and improve them

A workplace health assessment will:

  • provide the current status of health at your workplace.
  • ways to improve it that can increase productivity
  • decrease absenteeism
  • and control health care costs for both workers and the organisation as a whole.

How it Works.

It is a necessary first step to assist with allocating resources, strategies for long term improvement and measuring outcomes

Initial health survey assessing health habits (10 minutes) 1-per year, per person

Follow-up survey assessing health habits post program (10 minutes) 1 every 3 months

The initial health survey is used to create a baseline of the current habits of the workforce. Follow-up surveys are used periodically throughout the year to measure progress and improvements in the health habits of the workforce.

Chronic health disease screening (10 minutes) 1-per year, per person

A chronic medical condition is one that has been (or is likely to be) present for six months or longer, for example, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, musculoskeletal conditions and stroke.

Workers who have a chronic health condition are referred to the nominated general practitioner. Eligible workers are then provided with 5 sessions with FUSS’s accredited exercise physiologist.
