Initiatives

With our commitment to promoting healthy lifestyle and wellbeing, we have developed a series of initiatives that provide useful information for our employees in particular focus areas. We work with industry professionals and experts in their fields to provide information that is accurate and relevant for our employees. Literature and tools from each of these initiatives will be available online within each program.

 

Skin Check

When was your last skin check? Early detection saves lives. Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. A simple skin check tool can help identify warning signs. Check yourself. Check your family. See a doctor if there are any concerns. Protecting your skin from the sun reduces the risk of skin cancer.

Active Body, Healthy Mind

Did you know that nearly 2 out of every 3 Australians are overweight? Every year, on average each of us gain between 0.5kg and 1kg of weight. Considering your food options and understanding how to make healthy swaps in your food and drink choices can make a considerable difference to your overall health.

Mental Health, Save a Mate!

Mental illness is common in Australia, with nearly 1 in every 5 people experiencing some form of mental illness during their lifetime. We encourage individuals to look out for each other and engage in conversations that can make a difference. Tools available in August 2018
