In addition to a simple medical examination, a check-up or health research may be carried out to assess an individual’s health. The purpose of the Health Programme is to keep individuals with key professional roles in optimal health.
In some services, companies may have a single employee on standby, 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, who is required to intervene immediately in the case of an emergency. An example is a programmer for the water balance of water-attractions in large holiday parks. This individual may be responsible for several parks in different countries and must travel immediately to a site in the case of an emergency. Therefore, the health of such an individual will be highly valued by his employer .
Though an individual may feel relatelively healthy, they may still have regular, minor discomforts and, therefore, are not experiencing optimal health. A Health Programme Check-up is able to assess any health issues and associated risks.
