Why hire Nutted Out Nutrition?
In recent years, there has been an increased concern about the declining health of our workers. Results released from the Victorian Government WorkHealth check on 200 000 employees in November 2010 show some disturbing statistics about the health of Victorian employees¹:
- 15.6% of workers had an increased risk of developing both Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease
- 25.5% had a waist circumference measurement which indicated a greatly increased risk of cardiovascular disease or Type 2 diabetes
- 25% had high cholesterol levels (>5.5 mmol/L)
- 42.6% of workers had an increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes while an further 23.5% were at high risk
- 70.3% of employees reported inadequate levels of physical activity (<30 mins daily)
- 18% were smokers
- 93.1% of workers reported eating less than the daily recommended intake of fruit and vegetables
These results can be considered as a snap shot of the health of our Victorians in the work place, and reflect that this demographic is a high risk group for developing one or more chronic diseases. According to a study from the AIHW, chronic diseases cost the Australian workforce 584 000 days of absenteeism each year. For your company, this means reduced productivity, efficiency and income.
