Ben launches new health checks

By autotech-nic on April 24, 2024

Automotive industry charity, Ben, is launching new health checks for automotive people, giving those who work in the industry to have a personal MOT for their physical and mental health.

Ben Health Checks can be booked by any automotive employer wanting to invest in the health and wellbeing of their employees. Prioritising employee health and wellbeing has never been more important for any business; Ben’s Health & Wellbeing survey indicates that 99% of respondents said they had experienced an issue with their health or wellbeing over the past 12 months.

The health checks involve one-on-one conversations about physical and mental health with a qualified health professional. The health checks also identify potential issues and also suggest making positive changes so people can live and work well.

Ben is offering two types of health checks; one focusing solely on physical health (20 minutes) and another that is a full MOT, checking both physical and mental health (30 minutes). In the physical health check, four tests are carried out including resting heart rate, blood pressure, body mass index (BMI) and body fat percentage. The health professional will then discuss results with each employee and compare them with national health guidelines to provide a clear understanding of their current physical health. In the physical and mental health check, employees will undertake the same physical health tests as well as a mental health check-in to see how they are feeling in terms of levels of stress, mood and worry and coping day-to-day.


To start the roll out of Ben’s Health Checks, the team will be attending the upcoming UK Garage & Bodyshop Event from 5-6th June at the NEC, offering attendees the opportunity to learn more and have their very own health check.

To learn more about Ben Health Checks and schedule a session for your employees, visit www.ben.org.uk/healthchecks. All health checks are delivered on site to allow for minimal disruption to the working day and they are private, confidential, and carried out on a one-to-one basis with a qualified health professional.
