In every work environment there are hazards which can impact our health and wellbeing. Some risks can be obvious, like physical hazards which cause trips and slips. Other hazards may be harder to see, such as poorly designed tasks and workspaces, excessive workloads, or a poor workplace culture.
There are many ways that organisations can improve their work practices to support health and wellbeing, including embedding policies, procedures and processes that encourage and enable a healthy workplace culture.
An important part of creating a healthier workplace is empowering everyone to be involved in creating workplace practices which support people’s health, safety and wellbeing.
