This is a time to raise awareness of health issues that affect men disproportionately and focus on getting men to become aware of problems they may have or could develop and gain the courage to do something about it.
An important focus at a crucial time
Our focus for this year’s Men’s Health Week will cover a range of topics, starting with COVID-19 and broadening as the week goes on to include diet, exercise and well-being.
Statistics from the ONS show that men make up 62% of COVID-19 deaths in people under 85. Our HR Team have circulated Employee and Line Manager FAQ’s and our regular COVID-19 updates have provided key information on how you can protect yourself and others from infection.
Our HSEQ Team continue to working hard to ensure that workplaces are kept safe for all employees by delivering PPE and creating COVID Secure Workplaces throughout the business, as well as cascading messages for toolbox talks and inductions.
