Preventive Health Check
A preventive Health Check is a valuable tool for many organisations. A periodic Health Check helps to identify any health problems in an early stage, preventing the complaints to become worse. It’s not only valuable for the staff member, but for any company healthy employees are indispensable. Corporate Vitality supports organisations with preventive Health Checks. Our Health Checks are conducted at the Corporate Vitality Centre at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven. The Corporate Vitality Centre is SCAS-certified.
Why is a preventive Health Check important?
During a preventive Health Check for companies, a Corporate Vitality physician analyses the health and physical condition of staff members. This helps to identify potential health problems and risks, and this way, they can be timely treated.
Additionally, a Health Check provides staff members a better insight in their own health, and this could encourage them to implement improvements in their lifestyle.

Frequently Asked Questions
The difference between a POHE and a PME? A thin line divides these two Health Checks, but the main difference is that a POHE specifically focuses on a staff member’s health in relation to the work situation. A PME focuses on an employee’s overall health. A PME is never compulsory but is seen as a suitable tool to deploy staff in an effective way. The POHE is compulsory in many sectors.
A PME is not compulsory, but it’s a tool to comply to Dutch labour law (Arbowet, article 18). This law includes the obligation for an employer to provide its staff a safe and healthy working environment. By having a PME periodically conducted, this obligation will be met.
Many organisations wonder if a POHE is compulsory. The answer is clear: only specific industry sectors require a POHE where working conditions are harmful to health. In sectors such as the chemical sector, construction industry or companies with night shifts, an annual POHE needs to be conducted. Would you like to know if your organisation is obliged to have a POHE conducted?
