HEALTH & WELLBEING

THE FACTS

  • Staying fit and healthy can reduce the risk of major illnesses, such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and cancer by up to 50% and lower the risk of early death by up to 30%.
  • Exercise also makes us more productive by keeping blood, glucose and oxygen levels high, which feeds the brain. It also releases endorphins into the body giving our mood a boost.

OUR BLUEPRINT COMMITMENT

We are committed to ensuring the safest and healthiest working environment for all our people.

WHAT WE ARE DOING...

Providing Health Care

We provide health care facilities where clinics are not easily accessible or affordable. Our clinic in Ghana employs four full-time nurses and sees over 100 people a day. It also offers counselling and advice on issues such as family planning and mental health.

Growing our Greens

In Ghana, we have established an eight acre kitchen garden to supply our canteen with fresh vegetables every day. The aim was to supplement the traditionally carbohydrate-rich diet with nutritious vegetables that can be locally grown, including carrots, cucumbers, cabbages and spring-onions.

Keeping Fit

We have dedicated sports facilities at our factories in Ghana, Egypt and South Africa. Our Keep Fit club in Ghana has become one of the best in the country and regularly fields winning volleyball and football teams. We also have teams at our other sites and in Brazil we run occupational gymnastics.

Minimising Risk

Our dedicated health and safety teams carry out regular risk assessments to ensure our working environment remains as safe as possible for all our people.
