Via your employer you can do the following modules of the Personal Health Check free of charge.

When you participate in the Personal Health Check, you create a personal health environment on an online, secure platform. Only for you. From here you can start the online questionnaires, enter your measurements (height, weight, waist circumference and blood pressure) and view your results. Here you will also find useful tips to get started. Independently or with professional parties that have been selected for you to work with. Everything without obligation and only if you want to.

Tell us more about your exercise, nutrition, smoking and alcohol behavior and relaxation. But also about your medical history and whether there are diseases or disorders in your family. It is an online questionnaire that will take you about 20 minutes. We mainly look at factors that influence your risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and mental problems. So that you know what you can do yourself to improve this yourself. Note: You may not be able to list all your specific health problems in the questionnaire.

Everyone is sometimes busy, anxious or depressed. That in itself is nothing special. We only speak of a disorder if a psychological complaint interferes with daily life.

Disorders come in all shapes and sizes and often have a major impact on daily life. The three most common complaints are: not being able to sleep well, worrying and too much stress. This can have unpleasant consequences. When the complaints become a disorder, every day is a challenge. It is then difficult to lead a normal life, to maintain contacts, to go to school or to work.

The online questionnaire* looks at anxiety, depression and burnout. If it turns out that you experience more complaints than you should, you will be referred to parties or professional guidance that can help you further.

*The questionnaire has been scientifically validated.

Physical or mental overload at work can have major consequences. Think of back, neck or shoulder pain, but also work stress. By identifying work stress or factors that can cause work stress in time, you can prevent burnout. And you keep the pleasure in your work.

In this online questionnaire you answer questions about both your mental work balance (what you can handle at work, which energy sources and stressors you experience, whether you get energy from your work) and your physical work balance (complaints about back, neck, arms and shoulders). With this module you map out your risks and you know how you can prevent risks related to your work.

When you incur hearing damage, this is often permanent. Loud music, concerts and headphones lead to an increase in hearing damage, especially among young people. Think of deafness or tinnitus. Do you still hear everything well? Or do you misunderstand your friends at a party or in a large group? Make sure you are there on time to prevent worse.

This module consists of an online questionnaire. If it turns out that there is (potential) hearing damage, you will be referred to parties that can help you further.

Do you work in the manufacturing sector or do you regularly come into contact with water (such as with hairdressers or nurses)? Then you easily get a too dry skin. But private circumstances can also cause various types of annoying skin complaints. This module consists of an online questionnaire that examines different circumstances in your work and what extra can be done to prevent complaints.

Sleep is more important than many people know. Poor sleep increases the risk of diseases such as obesity, stroke, depression and type 2 diabetes. Poor sleep can manifest itself in various sleep complaints or even disorders, and can become a chronic problem. Good and healthy sleep consists of sufficient hours of good quality sleep.

The need for hours of sleep is related to age, among other things, and decreases over the life course. This means that there is not one recommended sleep duration, but that a healthy sleep duration can be different for each individual. This module gives you insight into your sleep quality, so that you know how they can start each day well rested and fit. Even if you have irregular working hours.

This module consists of an online questionnaire that focuses on risks and complaints related to eye function. This module is especially suitable if you work in front of a screen for a long time every day. Early detection of eye complaints and poor vision can prevent worse.
