Abstract

This case study is on a large mining equipment supply company in Perth, Western Australia. The purpose of the study was to benchmark the workforce, create performance metrics, implement interventions - based on the data and review the commercial data points and risk profiles. We also had to identify the one health factor that could most impact on the health profile of business. The workforce benchmark (n=123) was; 41.8±12 years, 176±8.5 cm tall, weighs 89±16.8 kg, has a BMI of 28.6±4.7, with 26.8±7.3% body fat, a neck of 40.4±3.1 cm, a waist of 100±8.5 cm and hips of 107±7.9 cm - reflecting a W:H of 0.93±0.07. The average blood pressure was 130±14.3/84±9.9 mmHg and blood glucose level of 5.3±1.6 mmol/L.  The self-report questionnaire benchmark: 24% have a positive CHD history, 63% have not had their cholesterol levels checked, 55% could be more active, 38% added salt to their food, 45% ate processed foods - often, 59% have less than 5 serves of fruit and vegetables, 23% indicated that their urine is discoloured, 14% smoke and 14% have >2 standard drinks per day. The company is embarking on a fully integrated program, using a range of modalities and technologies to rectify the risk profiles and link any changes to their business processes. We will report on the outcomes of the first six-month of changes
