Thames Water is the largest water and waste water services provider in the UK with over 15 million customers.
We have over 13,000 employees who work for us or on our behalf, across 350 sewage works, 102 water treatment works, 288 pumping stations and 235 reservoirs.
We encourage everyone who works with us to take responsibility for their health and wellbeing by making sustainable healthier lifestyle choices.
To support this we’ve joined with other employers in safety critical industries from across London, as part of the Great Britain Health and Wellbeing Week campaign.
During the week we’ll increase awareness of health and wellbeing issues and provide employees with the information to make informed choices. We’ll enable our employees to know their own health condition by providing free confidential personal medical assessments to all, with a trained medical professional. Our Executive team will lead on a challenge throughout the week to raise awareness of occupational health issues and we will hold a sports day promoting exercise through fun events while raising money for a nominated health charity. Several other initiatives will take place during the week, such as team daily challenges and a mandatory 30 minute halt for health discussion led by all our managers to their teams.
Great Britain Health and Wellbeing Week supports our wider health and wellbeing programme, which encourages our employees to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing, prevents occurrences of occupational illness and supports our employees in managing ill-health and early return to work.
At Thames Water there is nothing more important to us than the safety, health and wellbeing of our people, whether at work, in the workplace or in the wider community.
