World Heart Day

We believe that a healthy heart is vital for a productive and fulfilling life and we urge all our colleagues to prioritise heart health, not just today ‘World Heart Day’ but every day!

Jo Swift, Office Management and part of the Well-Being Team, at Mabanaft UK, comments:

“At Mabanaft we value the well-being of our employees, and in addition to promoting a healthy work-life balance, we offer a wealth of resources to support heart health, from health and wellness programs to flexible work options as well as healthy snacks in our break out spaces. We encourage employees to find the right balance between work and personal life, promoting reduced stress and better health”

One of the first steps in preventing cardiovascular disease (CVD) is to understand the risk factors associated with it. Some of these risk factors are manageable or avoidable:

High blood pressure

High cholesterol


Physical inactivity

Unhealthy diet



Excessive Alcohol

At Mabanaft, we place a high value on the heart health of our employees. As an organisation, we recognise the importance of promoting healthy lifestyles and encouraging regular check-ups to prevent heart disease and related complications.

We strive to provide a safe and supportive work environment that prioritises the well-being of our colleagues. By investing in the health of our employees, we aim to promote productivity and optimise performance while fostering a culture of care and responsibility. To support them we provide a variety of services that are specifically tailored to help manage stress, anxiety, and other concerns that can potentially lead to heart-related issues. We strongly believe that by making positive lifestyle choices, such as engaging in physical activities and maintaining a healthy diet, we can significantly reduce the risk of heart-related health problems.

A healthier heart leads to a happier and more productive life!
