Why take action?

A healthy workplace is a thriving workplace with strong leadership and a culture of care that result in greater engagement and productivity, fewer work-related injuries and illnesses, and improved health and wellbeing outcomes for all.

An important part of creating a healthy workplace is working together to proactively design-out health hazards and design-in a healthy environment and culture.

While supporting the health and wellbeing of people at work can help everyone live healthier lives, it also makes good business sense.
