Workplace health is promoting and managing the health and wellbeing of staff and includes managing sickness absence and ‘presenteeism’ (a person who is physically at work, but unproductive).
Workplace health interventions are activities undertaken within the workplace by an employer or others to address these issues. It also includes action to address health and safety risks.
The ‘Health, work and health related worklessness’ briefing provides local councillors with a strong business case to address health-related worklessness and promote workplace health in their local authority.
These documents provide guidance for employers of all sizes, local and national government and commissioners.
