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 2020 - Protect yourself and others
In these corona pandemic times, preventive measures such as hygiene, vaccinations and infection prevention are in the foreground. The Corporate Health Management department provides employees with information and offers on the intranet to support them during the crisis and to make a contribution to their health. These include, for example, special offers for working remotely from home, video clips and advice on topics such as nutrition, exercise / ergonomics and mental stress. A further focus in 2020 is the prevention of influenza. With various new approaches and digital solutions, the Corporate Health Management department supports BASF 4.0 and contributes to BASF's innovative strength with its support.
