Medical professionals have recommended employers implement a number of measures in the workplace to encourage and facilitate healthier lifestyles for employees. These practices can reduce the amount of medical services needed and reduce workplace-related illnesses or injuries as well.
A few of the recommended promotional measures involve:
- Exercise – Something as simple as providing secured bike parking for commuters or shower and locker facilities for those who want to exercise at lunchtime can increase the likelihood of exercise.
- Preventive care – This may include providing vaccinations in the workplace during flu season.
- Education – Hold seminars designed to raise awareness of healthier practices.
