Upping the apples and pears in Health and Safety Week

Staff at the Environment Agency will be provided with locally produced fruit next week (13 to 17 October) as part of Health and Safety Week.

Home grown apples and pears from M A Manning and Son in Willingham will  be given to staff in Bedford, Huntingdon, Ely and Kings Lynn, as part of the week, aimed at raising awareness and providing information and practical advice on health and safety issues.

Staff will also be able to have their blood pressure, cholesterol and body mass index measured and to be given a fitness score.

A number of lunchtime walks will be taking place throughout the week at each of the four offices to encourage physical activity, as well as relaxation massage taster sessions.

Demonstrations of vehicle checks and free bicycle checks are also on offer. 

Rob Bakewell, an area health and safety advisor said: ‘Health and Safety Week gives us the opportunity to highlight just how seriously we take health and safety at the Environment Agency.

‘People usually think of health and safety applying only to outside workers but office workers can be just as vulnerable to risks.

‘During the week staff will have the opportunity to be involved in a range of activities that promote a greater understanding of the importance of health and safety issues at work and at home.’
