Pretoria - One head and shoulders massage per worker per year.

This is one of the services the South African National Roads Agency (Sanral) is requesting in a tender for social services over at least the next three years.

The agency, which has government as its only shareholder, is planning to introduce a toll of about 65c/km on all Gauteng freeways next year.

Last week Sanral declined to answer Sake24's questions on the issue.

However, it appears from tender documents that the organisation envisages a full-time, multilingual and multicultural call centre for its employees.

It will offer the services of psychologists, biokineticists, dieticians, lawyers, debt counsellors and registered nurses. This network of professionals also has to be available countrywide for visits to all Sanral offices and employees' homes.

Legal advice on any issue unrelated to the job, advice on childcare and care of the aged, cancer and HIV, twice-a-year measurements at work of glucose levels, body mass, and stress and burnout management have to form part of the package.

Once a year the team has to look at lung function assessment, flu injections, parenting, recreation and a balance between employees' working and private lives - and each worker should receive a head-and-shoulders massage.

The tender should be based on services for 70 employees.
