Increasingly, employer groups are finding that work site health promotion leads to a more engaged and productive workplace.
For example a ‘meta-evaluation’ of 56 studies published 1982–2005 found that worksite health promotion produced on average a decrease of 26.8% in sick leave absenteeism, a decrease of 26.1% in health costs, and a decrease of 32% in workers’ compensation costs and disability management claims costs.

At Laverty Pathology, we are able to tailor on-site or off-site wellness screening programs where we can arrange our staff to perform and report wider assessments, or alternatively we can participate in a program that only monitors health from a bio-medical market perspective (that is analyses of key blood and urine indicators).
We are able to co-ordinate and tailor a screen, and issue an employee report of progress to individual or groups of your staff on key wellness indicators such as:
- Vaccination administration (e.g., Influenza)
- Blood and pressure monitoring
- Heath risk assessment questionnaires
- ECG monitoring
- Body mass index
- Key laboratory markers: - Cardiac/Lipid studies - Liver function tests - Diabetes screens - Joint health (arthritis) screens.
