1 January, 2013
Submitted: 7 May, 2014
Please describe how you have supported staff with chronic conditions over the last year. There is a 2000-character limit when completing this section
We continue to work with all staff with such conditions on a case by case basis across the business. This involves making reasonable adjustments to work patterns and the working environment wherever possible and practicable, involving (where applicable) the local NHS Trust, Occupational Health Support and specialist third party bodies such as charities and providers of specialist employment services in certain cases.
All staff also have access to confidential helplines that can provide counselling support/advice for them and their family 24/7.Regular refresher training is carried out in branches and warehouses to ensure colleagues are fully aware of correct manual handling techniques - helping to reduce back pain related absence.
We participate in the Government's annual 'Stop Smoking' programmes and run, at our larger sites, regular wellbeing week's promoting exercise, health eating etc
