Workplace health and wellbeing

Where you work affects your health, including your physical, mental, economic and social wellbeing. It can also affect the health and wellbeing of your family and community.

Workplace health and wellbeing programs promote worker health and can bring about positive improvements in the health of staff, their families and that of the wider community.

Benefits of a healthy workplace

Workplace health and wellbeing programs are known to:

  • reduce workplace injuries and any related costs
  • encourage employees to enjoy work and stay in an organisation for a longer time

Healthy workers are:
