Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

PERTH Air­port has been la­belled one of WA’s health­i­est work­places.

The 2016 HBF Cor­po­rate Wellness Index recog­nises or­gan­i­sa­tions within the State that suc­cess­fully sup­ports em­ploy­ees in im­prov­ing health and well­be­ing.

The index gave a view of the over­all health of staff, tracked over time to eval­u­ate the ef­fec­tive­ness of work­place wellness ser­vices each year.

Perth Air­port CEO Brad Geatches said be­ing named one of WA’s health­i­est work­places for the third year in a row re­flected the high value placed on em­ployee well­be­ing.

“We work in a busy en­vi­ron­ment that op­er­ates 24/7, 365 days a year and we have an added re­spon­si­bil­ity to pro­vide a healthy work­place for our team,” he said.

“Em­ploy­ees have ac­cess to a range of ini­ta­tives, such as ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams around healthy food choices and cook- ing demon­stra­tions, as well as fit­ness classes and work­place mas­sages.”

Em­ploy­ees also have ac­cess to tools that help to de­velop proper sleep pat­terns, re­lax­ation as well as help on how to main­tain a work-life bal­ance.

The HBF Cor­po­rate Wellness Index is based on mea­sur­ing em­ploy­ees’ car­diac risk scores, de­rived from as­sess­ing health vari­ables such as fam­ily health his­tory and nu­tri­tional fac­tors.
