An Ounce Of Prevention Is Worth
A Ton Of Cure
Nucor believes safety is about much more than staying out of harm’s way in the plant or at home. So for decades, we’ve been holding Annual Health Fairs at our divisions across North America.
Most fairs include on-site diagnostic teams, who do everything from blood pressure checks to diabetes tests to carotid artery and abdominal ultrasounds. Many divisions also bring in area vendors, such as physical therapists, dieticians, chiropractors, and vision specialists.
In some cases, our fairs have proven to be life saving. At a recent health fair, a teammate’s wife was found to have a 99% blockage in her carotid artery. She underwent successful surgery the very next morning. On-site screenings have also caught many cases of pre-diabetes and high cholesterol before they became serious health problems.
