Sustainability - Wellness Initiative

Wellness Logo

At PITT OHIO, our most significant resource is our people, so we've extended our mission to be People Driven beyond the workplace. In 2007, PITT OHIO initiated a company-wide wellness program in an effort to encourage our employees to Eat Right, Be Fit and Live Well.

The goal of the program is to improve our employees' health and safety. In order to allow each employee the opportunity to perform to his or her greatest potential, we take care of our people. And in turn – our employees take exceptional care of our customers.

June 2021 – Men's Health Month

June is Men's Health Month! Anchored by a Congressional health education program, Men's Health Month is celebrated across the country with screenings, health fairs, media appearances, and other health education and outreach activities.

The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. This month gives health care providers, public policy makers, the media, and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury. The response has been overwhelming with thousands of awareness activities in the USA and around the globe.

Sustainability - Eat Right

Eat Right – Your Healthy Eating Game Plan

Due to poor health habits, failure to seek medical attention, and dangerous occupations, men live sicker and die younger than women. Men die at higher rates for the top causes of death. This includes deaths from cancer, diabetes, suicide, and accidents and diseases of the heart, kidney and liver. Taking control of your health by exercising, eating right and visiting your healthcare provider regularly all contribute to a better quality of life.

 Sustainability - Be Fit

Be Fit – Exercise & Mental Health

Mental health disorders are on the rise but, like many other conditions, your mental health can be greatly improved through exercise! Exercise releases neurotransmitters called endorphins – feel good chemicals produced by the brain. As little as 20 minutes of semi-vigorous walking can cause this reaction to occur in the brain. Although moderate-intensity exercise like jogging and cycling are more beneficial, any physical activity is great, especially when it comes to stress reduction.

 Sustainability - Live Well

Live Well – Know Your Numbers

Don’t know your numbers?  If you haven’t had an annual physical this year, it’s time to schedule one. If you have, your physician’s office should have your numbers for you.  Know where you stand. There is power knowing your numbers (blood pressure, cholesterol, etc.). These numbers are important indicators of your health. When they are out of normal range, it’s a signal that you could have a higher risk of developing certain diseases and conditions. Live well and KNOW YOUR NUMBERS!!!
