Falck's Health Policy takes its point of departure in the KRAMS factors which stands for (Diet, Smoking, Alcohol, Exercise, and Stress). The KRAMS factors are what affect our health the most.
In Falck we have taken it a step further and added an M for Mental Health - KRAMMS. Many factors indicate that your mental health is crucial before you can consider making changes to your diet and exercising. Also, focusing on your mental health can act preventively against stress.
Falck’s alcohol policy describes the guidelines and conditions regarding alcohol and other drugs.
Furthermore, it describes how you should act as a colleague or a manager if an employee is suffering from an addiction. Addiction can cause severe consequences not only for the addict but also for the family, colleagues, and further acquaintances.
Numerous signals can indicate an addiction, and employees must not be afraid to bring up the subject with their manager or work environment representative if there is any suspicion about addiction.
To clear up any concerns about addiction and, if there is an addiction, to help a colleague out of it, is a sign of care.
Contact the Staff Association on telephone: +45 2032 2045 who can help you further. All employees are covered by this scheme.
Smoking is one of the factors that have the biggest negative influence on public health in Denmark. Every year 14.000 people in Denmark die from smoking, and 2.000 people die from passive smoking. Smoking also increases the risk of developing lifestyle diseases such as KOL, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases, and therefore there are many good reasons to stop smoking. Several municipalities in Denmark are offering free courses to help quit smoking, so if you feel that you need help, then find out if your municipality offers stop smoking courses.
Falck has passed a smoking policy which determines that smoking is not allowed in the company buildings, vehicles, or in connection with customers. E-cigarettes are also included in the policy with the same restrictions as ordinary tobacco smoking.
The attachment below is a document prepared by the Ministry of Health, which is a stop smoking guide that could be helpful.
If you would like more information on how to stop smoking and the courses available, you can read more on the official website of the Lung Association.
At Falck Healthcare you can find plenty of advice on how to deal with stress amongst colleagues, managers, or relatives. Additionally, there are several descriptions with facts and prevention that can contribute to an increased focus on stress.
“You are what you eat” is a phrase that is frequently used – and there is something to it!
This is why your diet routines are of great importance to your health and your daily well-being.
Falck has been working with healthy diets through the project – Redder uden skader (rescuer without injuries). In that context, various materials were prepared as an inspiration to focus on a healthy diet in each station/department.
Exercise is a necessary attribute to stay in good health.
Exercise is an area that we will focus more on in Falck with the purpose of minimising the number of work injuries and sick days. Furthermore, our aim is to contribute to a general increased health among our employees in shape of renewed energy. Our body is our primary technical aid in many situations, and not just during the work hours in Falck, but also at home and in the spare time.
HR Denmark and Falck Sport are working closely together to ensure a range of activities for the employees. Furthermore, physical requirements for admission as a trainee in the ambulance area have been introduced. The yearly activities in Falck and Falck Sport can be seen in the Annual Wheel.
You can see the various exercises in the physical test for trainees in the ambulance area here (can you pass the test?). To minimise the risk of injuries, in connection with the work done in the emergency ambulance service, the project “Rescuer without injuries” has been focusing on exercise and work-out.
Your mental health goes hand in hand with your well-being at the workplace. Your well-being is important to Falck because we want you to feel good, and because we care about our colleagues.
Different phases of life will also have an impact on your work-life balance and your mental health. If you frequently experience being absent or distanced at your job or home, it can be caused by an imbalance between your values, priorities, and what you do in practice. In that case, it can be a good idea to talk to your manager about it.
