Research has proved that a healthy workforce is not only more productive in terms of unit output each day, but also looses less time through sickness, accident and staff attrition.
Developing a Health and Safety Programme for these staff is now on the agenda for many companies and nutrition education is an important part of such a plan.
Over the past ten years Lea Stening Health has worked with a number of companies in this way. NZ Police, NZ Fire Service, Air NZ, Mount Cook, Johnson Coachlines, Gunn’s Veneer Co, IRD, ACC etc. to name just a few.
We can help in the following ways:
Set up a nutrition questionnaire that assesses the nutritional knowledge/needs of your workforce.
Power point presentations
Design a power point presentation on nutrition that includes the results of the questionnaire your staff have completed.
Seminars and workshops
Conduct seminars for staff or workshops on practical ways to improve nutrition.
Networking with other health professionals
Work with other health professionals within your organisation such as your company doctor or industrial health nurse or social workers to work with individual workers or to help target identified nutritional needs within your group.
Food services assessment
Assess in house food services for nutritional adequacy and where necessary make recommendations for change.
Contribution to in-house publications
Contribute nutritional articles or columns for your company newsletters or in-house magazines.
