Did you know that we spend about a third of our lives at work? Healthy workplaces matter because work can have a significant impact on our health and wellbeing, and can be a positive contributor to our health. A healthy workplace takes into consideration the impact that the workplace culture, work environment and type of work can have on the health, safety and wellbeing of workers.
A healthy workplace benefits both the business and workers through reduced injuries, improved productivity and a more supported, engaged and motivated workforce. It benefits everyone. It places high importance on safety, the management of injuries if they occur, workplace mental health and emotional wellbeing and has a particular focus on new or young workers who may be at higher risk of injury.
