We’re working to promote better health and wellbeing for everyone who works at MTS.
Free self-service health checks are available to everyone at MTS Stanley House in Rochester, Kent during the first week of September.
In association with A Better Medway, we’re installing a wellbeing kiosk which measures height, weight, BMI (body mass index), blood pressure, pulse, body fat and visceral fat.
High blood pressure is known as the silent killer because it often has no symptoms. The only way to know whether you have an issue is to have a check. High blood pressure can narrow arteries and blood vessels which can lead to damage to the brain or heart. We’re supporting the annual campaign from Blood Pressure UK Know Your Numbers Week (10 – 16 September) and encouraging all MTS staff to get a free blood pressure check.
There are many ways to lower your risk and high blood pressure can be treated and often prevented.
Anyone working at or visiting Stanley House 3 – 7 September is invited to take a free health MOT at the wellbeing kiosk.
On Wednesday 5 September the Better Medway team will be on hand in Stanley House to talk about the FREE NHS health check available to anyone aged 40-74 every five years. The team will also be able to book appointments for people living in Medway.
We work to keep our people updated on wellbeing issues through regular email updates and features in our bi-monthly newsletters. In addition we promote campaigns and events through posters and leaflets at our regional depots.
Every two years we carry out a staff wellbeing survey to get feedback on our work and we also ask for suggestions on future topics.
We also work closely with key clients on wellbeing in the workplace, for example we attend regular meetings of the Southern Water Wellbeing Working Group with other supply partners. This group shares ideas and supports work to help reduce stress, anxiety and depression at work.
MTS has also committed to end mental heatlh discrimination at work through signing the Time to Change Pledge. Several MTS employees are trained Mental Health First Aiders who can help someone experiencing a mental health problem and guide them towards appropriate professional help.
