AS PART OF CORPORATE HEALTH & SAFETY'S HOLISTIC APPROACH, HEALTH LEADERS AT CUMMINS ARE EXPLORING THE CONNECTION BETWEEN PERSONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY.
Kelli Smith, Occupational Health Director, said Corporate Health & Safety has been working closely with Cummins Chief Medical Director Dr. Dexter Shurney and the company’s health benefits staff on initiatives such as Cummins’ LiveWell Center in Columbus, Indiana (USA).
The center, which will open in 2016, will be home to a number of physician and health-related services, ranging from routine health and optometry exams to health coaching, classes on nutrition, acupuncture and chiropractic and physical therapy services.
The center will be available to all active employees, their spouses and dependents over the age of 2.
“We want our employees to arrive at work feeling 100 percent,” Smith said. “Something as simple as not getting enough sleep can affect how an employee performs and that can impact safety.”
