Health and Wellbeing
It is extremely important to us that our people are healthy, happy and maintain a well-balanced work life. Our focus is on enhancing health and well-being through informed healthy lifestyle choices to prevent illness. However where illness occurs we provide varying levels of support together with provision of free AXA PPP Healthcare.
Recognising the impact mental health has on wellbeing we are working with ‘Mind’ the ‘Samaritans’ and ‘Mental Health First Aid England’ to help raise awareness through the Health in Construction Leadership Group and the industry wide ‘Mates in Mind’ campaign.
By signing the ‘Time to Change’ pledge, we are demonstrating our commitment to change, how we think and act about mental health in the workplace and ensuring our people facing these problems feel supported. We are committed to normalising the conversation about mental health in the workplace and have put in place trained ‘Mental Health First Aiders’.
RPS Healthcare Provider
In September 2016 we appointed RPS Occupational Health as our new provider specialising in workplace health. Providing services such as health surveillance, fitness for work medicals and sickness absence case management, RPS supports us to ensure legal compliance and to support employers and employees when work impacts on health or health impacts on work.
RPS provides services using a fleet of Mobile Screening Units or via a clinic (depending on the type and number of medicals required). RPS Occupational Health Practitioners have experience of the potential health hazards within our industry.
