University of Hertfordshire staff get free health MOTs
STAFF at the University of Hertfordshire are being offered a free health and fitness ‘MOT’ as part of a new initiative.
Coaches test blood pressure, cholesterol levels, lung function and body mass index as part of a 45-minute check-up.
They also assess physical flexibility and hydration levels as part of the YoUr Health: MOT scheme being run by the on-site Hertfordshire Sports Village.
Staff are given instant feedback, while a follow-up appointment is also offered to check on their progress.
The scheme was launched last month following the results of the latest staff survey at the Hatfield-based uni.

Nearly half of 1,240 employees who took part said they would use health and fitness screening if it was offered in the workplace.
Project officer Rhian Crawford said: “The results of the survey illustrate how our staff value their own health and fitness.

“The on-site expertise available at the sports village means we are perfectly placed to offer health MOTs at a time and a place which is convenient to university staff.
“We also have the capability and expertise to offer these services to other companies and have already started to work with employers in the local area.”
