25% OF YOUR STAFF COULD HAVE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE. BUT DO THEY KNOW IT?

WHO IS AT RISK IN YOUR WORKPLACE?

High blood pressure is the third biggest risk factor for premature death in England, after smoking and poor diet. A recent government report estimates that around 5.5 million people in England have undiagnosed high blood pressure – that’s over 10% of the population.

If you consider a workforce of 200 people, this means that 50 of them will have high blood pressure, 30 of them will know it, and 20 will be completely unaware – possibly until it’s too late.

WHY IS HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE A PROBLEM?

Undiagnosed and untreated, high blood pressure puts a strain on your heart and cardiovascular system, which can lead to life-altering and potentially even life-threatening diseases and complications, such as:

Heart Failure

Coronary Artery Disease

Stroke

HOW TO TACKLE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

Because high blood pressure doesn’t have any symptoms, the only way to know if it’s affecting you is to get your blood pressure checked.

Offering a blood pressure check to staff is a quick and easy way to help them identify their risk and take action if necessary – ultimately leading to a happier, healthier and more productive workplace.

May Measure Month is an international effort to promote regular blood pressure testing and is a fantastic time to promote this cause. If you’re interested in holding blood pressure testing in your workplace, fill out the form and we’ll get back to you with more information.
