Encouraging a healthy approach to work

March 2009

Residents showed their active side when they supported an initiative to promote the idea of a healthy workplace.

The Wilton Centre has teamed up with Redcar & Cleveland Primary Care Trust to take part in the North East Better Health at Work Award, which was launched in January this year.

Wilton Centre Facilities Management has been involved with such initiatives for two years, including a blood pressure checking event, stress awareness sessions and healthy eating presentations.

Keith Thompson, WCFM’s Safety Health and Environment (SHE) Advisor, said: "With the activities we already have in place, we are well on the way to achieving a Bronze Award, which is the first level of the new scheme. We now also have an incentive to aim for the silver and gold awards."

Eva Forte, SHE Manager/Process Engineer of AkzoNobel, one of the residents to sign up for the scheme, said: "We think that this is a good opportunity for us to contribute to the ‘health’ part of SHE which is often overlooked. A healthy body equals a healthy mind."

Dave Brown SHE Manager of DuPont Teijin Films, said: "We are keen to participate in the scheme and see it as a way to benefit both employees and the business."

Roz Elms, Health Improvement Specialist (Workplace Lead) of Redcar & Cleveland PCT who is coordinating the initiative said: "I am extremely pleased that the Wilton Centre has become one of the first employers within this locality to sign up to the new North East Better Health at Work Award."
