Employee Health & Wellness

G. Zavitz Ltd. has been working with local schools since 2012 as part of their Co-operative Education Programs.  As a part of those initiatives and collaborations, the Health & Safety Department is proud and excited to present the Employee Health & Wellness section of the website.

With the assistance of these students, we have created a Health & Wellness page for Employees.  Students have worked diligently on researching and creating appealing documents for the GZL employees to view and read.

It has become increasingly important for the Health & Safety Department to do a page like this, as most of the employees have jobs which keep them in stationary positions for extended lengths of time. With the lack of movement and potentially poor diets, as employees, we are putting ourselves at risk for health issues and injuries. It is our hope that we all take advantage of the information and make conscious decisions about our health and well being.

Please be aware that this information is from various sources that our Co-op students have compiled from the internet.  We do not claim to be health experts, we are just providing a single source for employees to gather some information to make healthier choices.  It is advised that you seek advice from a physician prior to any health regime.
