Our Wellness team ended off a very successful 2013 with a last road trip to the coast, screening employees of ErongoRED. This trip proved to be as much an adventure as any. Due to an electricity breakdown in Karibib most of the technicians were unable to leave the crisis location for the Wellness screening; this is when the team decided to meet the electricity heroes in the noon day sun at ground zero.

From the back of the bakkie they conducted as many screenings as the instruments could take in the scorching sun and heat. Still the overall screenings of the whole trip just again indicated how much value is added, as members were made aware of health risks that needed immediate attention as well as those that could be looked at in the future.
