Workplace health promotion is not just about health education, it’s about establishing healthy workplace policies and supportive environments, building individual skills and organisational resilience and promoting healthy lifestyles.

Physical Health, Mental Health and Lifestyle Factors work together to give a balanced status.

It is a statutory requirement for businesses to carry out health surveillance medicals for those employees at risk from hazards including noise, vibration, solvents, dusts, fumes, and other substances hazardous to health.

Absence from work is a growing concern. Work related ill-health can happen in any business, whatever its size.
The key to successful management is a clearly defined process with identifiable trigger points and a resolutions-based service that is directive.
