Scary fact: 1 Australian dies every 12 minutes from a heart attack, stroke or blood vessel disease.
That’s why our Healthy Hearts program is an ideal addition to your health and wellbeing initiatives. We come to your workplace and provide onsite Healthy Heart checks in Perth and around WA
The Healthy Hearts program helps to identify those employees at increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Our 1:1 education teaches each employee about their own individual risks, and the small practical, lifestyle changes they can make to reduce their chance of heart attack, stroke and heart disease. This can ultimately reduce absenteeism and support a more health-conscious culture.
As part of the Healthy Hearts program, each employee has an individual assessment that focuses on evaluating the current status of their cardiovascular health, particularly as it pertains to lifestyle risk factors.
- Each 1:1 consultation includes:
- Blood pressure
- Total Cholesterol
- Blood glucose
- Health & lifestyle risk factors review
- Dr referral where required
- The assessment takes 15 minutes
- Program management is easy via our online booking system with SMS/email reminders and follow-up
- You receive a company report outlining the summary of results and recommendations for your team, department or organisation.

Workplace health and wellbeing
More than 11 million Australians spend an average of 8 hours a day in the workplace (Australian Bureau of Statistics 2014).
That’s a big chunk of the day that many of us are not as active as we could be if our job mainly involves sitting. Not getting enough physical activity and sitting too much both increase risk for heart disease and other health problems. To improve heart health, we need to:
- do 30-45 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity (like brisk walking) most days of the week
- reduce the time you spend sitting every day and break up sitting time
The Heart Foundation has some excellent resources and tools you can use to promote heart health in the workplace. Here are links to just a few of their informative and practical pages:
