Hundreds of Occupational Health advisors run Pressure Stations during Know your Numbers! Week each year because of the range of great benefits it provides:
- Convenience helps attract staff who may not usually have their blood pressure checked by their GP
- Identifies individuals with high blood pressure - early intervention can save lives and prevent potential poor health
- Highlights to your organisation the service you provide and the direct benefit your work has
- Gets staff interested in health and gives a reason to visit Occupational Health
- Great way to get men interested in their health - our research shows on average 55% of those who attend a Pressure Station at work are men
- Opportunity to raise the profile of your work and your organisation through internal/external publicity, plus your organisation can feature as a participator on our website
- Participation helps demonstrate your organisation's Corporate Social Responsibility.
