Health and wellbeing at work
How work health can strengthen your business.
Through the implementation of this action plan, Workplace Health and Safety Queensland aims to build industry capacity to identify and manage work related chronic disease hazards. An integrated safety, health and wellbeing approach underpins all activities outlined in the action plan.
Well designed and well managed workplaces can play a beneficial role in improving worker health and wellbeing, minimising avoidable ill health, and facilitating faster recovery and return to work after injury or illness.
Integrated approaches to health, wellbeing and safety can prevent work related injuries and illness and enhance worker health.
There are certain industries identified at higher risk of chronic disease. Read the statistics here.
