The Belper site of DS Smith has been awarded a silver healthy heart mark by national charity Heart Research UK for encouraging healthy lifestyle habits among its employees.

By choosing to take on the Healthy Heart Checks that Heart Research UK provides, the packaging and supply cycle specialist provided workers with the opportunity to have their blood pressure, cholesterol levels, BMI and waist measurements checked and ask questions about their lifestyle habits.

The award is an accreditation that shows how an organisation values its workforce by making positive contributions towards employee health and wellbeing. Brian Wark, HR Director, UK Packaging at DS Smith, said: “We have a duty of care to our employees and we are committed to supporting initiatives that lead to a healthy and happy workforce.”
