Province invests in employees’ wellness
Working on Fire in Limpopo brought health services to their employees through the Wellness Campaign which was organised by the Tzaneen Base Manager in conjunction with the AgriAids SA Coordinators.
The day started with the presentation by the AgriAids coordinator who highlighted the facts and myths surrounding the HIV Virus.
“We started the partnership with Working on Fire Tzaneen to ensure that we bring the primary health services to their fire fighters due to the nature of their job which result in them not being able to have time to visit the clinics to check their health status,” said Calving Mgidi, the Project Coordinator from AgriAids.
Calvin highlighted that it is an individual’s responsibility to ensure that they know their health status, because some of the chronic diseases build up in a human’s body without showing until at the later stage when it too late.
The WoF participants were also given an opportunity to get tested for high blood pressure, HIV and Aids, diabetes and other chronic diseases.
“We brought AgriAids on board to come and visit our participants at work because they have the right to know their health status. I am happy that the event went well and that our participants took advantage of this day. We are planning to make this an annual event,” said Nicole Ramokone the Base Manager at the Tzaneen base.
