Last week, Sunshine Coast Police held a ‘Health Expo’ at the Maroochydore RSL for Police officers and staff members.
The expo promoted the health and well-being of our QPS members and their families, encouraging people to focus on four pillars: Fair and Positive Workplaces, Safe Workplaces, Healthy Minds and Healthy Bodies.
The event was free for QPS employees and families as well as the Emergency Services personnel in the Sunshine Coast.
The Expo held on the Sunshine Coast provided an opportunity for members to talk to a range of industry experts on all sorts of Health and financial matters along with testing being available for Diabetes and Blood Pressure.
The Health food display was also a hit with some yummy recipes on display and nutritional information available.
Surf Life Saving Queensland provided a display to advise members of the benefits and how to get involved for themselves and their families, Police Chaplain Matt Govan and crew were also on board for any advice and available to anyone who wanted to find out more about the service or to have a chat.
Representatives from QSuper and Qbank were also in attendances and provided valuable information and advice for members about their financial security and options.
Principal Workplace Champion Inspector Jon Lewis said he was pleased that the event had attracted a number of staff members and Police officers.
“This event creates a great opportunity for our staff members and Police officers to gain an insight into their Health and Well Being options.”
