Wingfield business Intercast & Forge is Australia’s largest cast iron foundry, employing 230 workers. It has welcomed the opportunity to address a wide range of Wellbeing topics as part of the Healthy Worker’s Healthy Futures initiative, and it is already starting to pay dividends – health dividends!

Addressing the Health Statistics head on: A quick word from Brice Metals General Manager
 
In the Australian manufacturing sector alone, two thirds of workers are reported to be either obese or overweight, and more than 33% perform little to no exercise. Improvement in health is not only beneficial for the individual, but can also result in strong business outcomes such as increased productivity, decreased absenteeism and reduced injury rates.*

Brice Metals has taken the leap towards greater health with the implementation of its Health and Wellbeing program – in particular, its own ‘Biggest Loser Challenge’. The program is simple: increase intake of fruit and vegetables, reduce intake of processed sugar and conduct more exercise. Workers that sign up are provided with ongoing support throughout the duration of the program.

Brice Metals General manager Dave Lander states: “The workplace setting is an ideal platform to promote good health and wellbeing. The program has created a real buzz around the factory, and we are on track for some great results – with one worker’s weight already down by 7.5kg. We plan on going a step further in 2017, addressing some key topics including smoking, alcohol consumption and mental health.”
