Global Health Promotion Program
BASF employees have various opportunities to maintain or improve their health through the global health promotion program. The program consists of three elements:
- BASF Health Check (regular individual offer for our employees)
- Global health campaign with a new prevention topic every year
- Local health promotion offers at BASF sites
Health promotion is one of five core elements of the Health Performance Index (HPI), which BASF uses annually to measure its performance in occupational health.
BASF Health Check
Employees focus on major lifestyle diseases during the BASF Health Check:
- Stress and everyday life management
- Back health
- Smoking cessation
In addition, the Work Ability Index (WAI) established internationally by the World Health Organization is used by our employees to self-assess their ability to work.
Employees are examined by the company physician and receive a detailed analysis of their state of health. The employees discuss their personal risk factors with the company physician and jointly derive any need for action.
Global Health Campaign 2021 - Recharge yourself
Refueling, i.e. regeneration, doesn't just mean getting enough sleep, relaxation and rest. Through physical activity and a balanced diet, we help our system to find the right balance and protect us from wear and tear.
The Corporate Health Management department offers employees a colorful mix of information and opportunities to participate - from online tools for determining individual training recommendations to our own BASF health channel and personal regeneration tips. In addition, work teams can use our "Teamparcours" to find a playful introduction to the subject of regeneration and nutrition.
