LGIS has been providing a broad range of health and wellbeing services as a benefit to members since 1996. The program has evolved and continues to be a highly valued component of the member-owned mutual.
Our Health and Wellbeing program takes a proactive approach to assist you in creating a healthy workplace, improve awareness of health issues, lower risk factors and in turn, improve your workers safety performance. These programs have shown to improve the general health of workers, assist with retention and attraction of staff and assist in the reduction of workers compensation claims.
The health and wellbeing manual (pdf) provides comprehensive information on the services available through the program. It introduces the panel of providers pre-qualified to deliver services, how to best access the program and much more.
For a quick summary of the program's features please see the health and wellbeing flyer (pdf).
