A new survey of train commuters in Sydney has found that most want their bosses to provide them with health checks and programs to get them more active during the day.
The survey was conducted by the NSW Government’s Get Healthy at Work Program.
1500 commuters at train stations in Sydney and the Central Coast were asked whether health checks and strategies to get them moving more at work could benefit their workplace.
Almost two-thirds of these respondents believe their workplace could benefit from a workplace health program that included health checks and advice on healthy eating and ways to get more active in the workplace. More than forty percent agreed their workplace could benefit from enabling staff to make healthier meal choices. Forty-seven percent believe their workplace could benefit from workplace health policies.
