Catering firm Brakes Group has ditched occupational health supplier Bupa and signed a contract with rival company Active Health Partners.
Brakes Group, which supplies food to the catering industry in the UK and France and has more than 7,000 employees in 70 locations, said the new deal will allow it to offer a more inclusive occupational health service to its entire workforce.
Andy Dagger, HR director at Brakes Group, said: “Brakes in partnership with Active Health Partners has designed a fully integrated and proactive occupational health service.
“The health and safety of our employees is vitally important to us and this new service provides them with comprehensive online medical assessments/advice and fast track treatment to facilitate their return to work.”
Under the deal, Brakes Group’s management team will have access to online information from a central database. This will enable them to understand issues and measure the impact of health and safety improvement initiatives, according to Dagger.
