how to get your numbers
When you take the health questionnaire, you'll be asked to provide your personal numbers, including your lab tests, so it's a good idea to have them ready. You don't need all of these numbers to take the health questionnaire or participate in the program, but you'll receive a more accurate result if you do. You’ll be asked to provide the following numbers:
- Height (without shoes)
- Weight (without shoes)
- Waist circumference
- Blood pressure
- Cholesterol (total, LDL, HDL, triglycerides)
- Blood glucose (blood sugar)
You can even provide them later after you've already started participating. If you've had a blood test to screen for your cholesterol and glucose within the past year, you can use those results in your health questionnaire. If it's been over a year since you've had a blood test, consider scheduling an appointment to get your up-to-date numbers. Here are some ideas to get your numbers checked. Availability will vary by location, so check with your local Human Resources or medical department for the resources available to you.
take advantage of a local health fair or screening event in locations offering these services
Some locations, but not all, occasionally sponsor health fairs that provide the opportunity to get these blood tests done on-site. You'll also receive notifications at your work locations when opportunities become available.
visit a chevron health clinic, health station, or fitness center
If your Chevron worksite has a health clinic, a health station, or a fitness center, you can visit them to get a blood pressure reading or body weight measurements. Some locations, but not all, may also check cholesterol or blood glucose.
visit a physician
Visit your physician and ask for an exam that includes the information listed above. In some cases this exam may be available as part of your local health care benefits. Local policies vary, so ask your Human Resources or medical department if these exams are available to you.
