Quebec firms launch health and wellness push

Montreal

— A group of Quebec employers, including JMJ Aéronautique, Mouvement Desjardins and Garda Canada, have formed GP2S, an organization that will promote injury and illness prevention. GP2S will contact firms across the province to enlist them in workplace health initiatives, such a healthy eating, smoke-free environments, stress management, fitness and weight-loss programs and blood pressure monitoring. GP2S, which seeks to tackle the productivity, financial and human costs of unhealthy workplaces and living, will also work to promote injury prevention.
