Did you know that 70% of diabetics work in enterprises?
Around 50% of people having diabetes do not even know about it! However, poorly controlled diabetes or a pre-diabetic state causes immediate repercussions on the performance of employees: tiredness, decrease in productivity, absenteeism, frequent replacements needed for the absentee. APSA proposes a solution through their health services in enterprises.
We, at Livestock Feed Ltd, believe that the health and safety of all concerned parties are of high priority. In light of this, for the financial year 2017-2018, we chose to run a campaign related to foot care and foot related health issues.
APSA Mauritius was invited to provide assistance and medical care to all employees of Livestock Feed Ltd. The approach was very professional and the response was very positive. A seminar conducted by a podiatrist, summarizing the outcome of the campaign and answering all queries from employees, was highly appreciated. Employees got the opportunity to explore all the aspects of foot care.
Thanks to the campaign and the intervention of the podiatrist, there has been an increase in awareness on foot health. Employees are more conscious of the importance of looking after their feet.
We would definitely recommend APSA for more of these activities.
