Worksafe ACT have developed a series of informative posters on psychosocial hazards and what they look like and what to do about them. They are to encourage organisations to make time to address these hazards in the workplace for the benefit of their workers and business.
Healthier Work annually produces a Case Study Book featuring the businesses which have been supported by Healthier Work over the year. The case studies are designed to provide examples of health and wellbeing initiatives in varying workplaces supported by Healthier Work, including how they have overcome barriers of creating a healthier workplace.
Your organisation may wish to use this example to develop your own Action Plan. Each workplace is unique and this example is intended as a guide only. Action planning allows you to set out clear and achievable goals, objectives and strategies for your workplace health and wellbeing program, based on the (workplace and employee) needs and employee interests you have identified through your needs assessment process. This planning is vitally important for ensuring a successful program.
Completing the 10 questions on this score card can assist you to establish a baseline against which your workplaces readiness and capacity to become a healthier workplace can be measured. Commenting in detail on each question will allow Healthier Work to tailor our approach if you choose to engage with them. At the completion of the score card, you will have the option for Healthier Work to contact you if your workplace is located in Canberra.
