Health Checks

workplace health checks

The benefits of providing your employees with health checks.

  • Reduced absenteeism
  • Improved staff retention
  • Improved corporate image
  • Employees feel valued
  • Become an employer of choice

Our health checks are designed as a screening tool to assess common health risk factors.
By performing some simple tests we can help your employees identify and manage the early warning signs
for many common health issues such as heart disease and diabetes.

Health check information

15 Minute Health Checks

Include the following:

  • Cholesterol
  • Blood glucose
  • Blood pressure measurement
  • Weight
  • Height
  • Body mass index (BMI)
  • Waist circumference

BMI & Waist Circumference

Body Mass Index (BMI) is used to estimate the total amount of body fat. Ideal BMI range is between 18 and 25.
Waist Circumference measures the amount of fat around your abdomen. This is a risk factor for coronary heart
disease and diabetes.

Acceptable levels:

  • Female < 80cm
  • Male < 94cm


Cholesterol is an essential fat made in the liver.
High cholesterol can result from a genetic predisposition (family history) even in people with a good diet and exercise program.
Eating too much saturated (animal) fat can also lead to excess cholesterol. A high level of cholesterol is a risk factor for Coronary Vascular Disease – heart attacks, strokes and circulation problems.

Total cholesterol levels should be < 5.2 mmol/l

Blood Glucose (Sugar)

Glucose is an essential energy source for our body.
High blood glucose levels could be a sign of pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes. There are often no warning signs so a quick test is the most effective way
to check levels.

Normal non-fasting levels:
Range between 3 – 8 mmol/L.

Blood Pressure (BP)

Blood pressure is the amount of force generated by the heart to push blood through the blood vessels.
High blood pressure (hypertension) is your heart pumping with more force than normal. You can have a high BP and still feel perfectly well.

Normal blood pressure is < 120/80

Important Information for Participants

  • Participants do not have to fast before the tests.
  • All blood tests are done from a finger prick.
  • Results are immediate.
  • Individual test results are strictly confidential.
  • Your company will receive a report of the data.
  • Areas of need are highlighted

Additional info

Our fully trained nurses will discuss the results with each participant and provide a written record for future reference.
They will explain how to interpret the information and how it relates to their health.

If a result is elevated the individual will be advised to visit their GP for further more detailed testing. For 50 or more health checks we provide a detailed graphical report on the health check overall results without Individual employees being identified.

The report can be used to highlight areas where your company could implement health and wellbeing programs such as employee exercise programs, quit smoking campaigns, or healthy eating education sessions.

Why Test?

Health Checks aim to encourage health enhancing behaviour such as improving nutrition, reducing weight,
increasing activity levels and ceasing smoking. Early detection of medical risk factors such as high
cholesterol, high blood pressure or elevated blood sugar levels can help lower the risk of chronic disease.
