Healthy Working Lives

what is it?

Healthy Working Lives is an exciting initiative to promote your health and well-being at work.

Issues being addressed include reducing your risk of suffering an injury or ill health at work, supporting staff attendance, addressing mental health and well-being issues, and health promotion activities such as healthy eating, smoking cessation and physical activity.

This initiative is being led by Human Resources and a Working Group has been set up that will report regularly on progress to the HR Committee via H&S reporting lines.

Please bookmark (by pressing Ctrl D) and check this web site since events and activities to promote your health and well-being will be published here on a regular basis.
