Managing Occupational Health & Wellbeing covers:
A healthy company
Delegates learn about health management and why it makes good business sense to manage occupational health and wellbeing in the workplace. They also learn what a ‘health needs assessment’ is and the key considerations that should be taken into account when carrying one out.
Health risk assessment
Introduces the five health hazard categories and looks at the causes of work-related health hazards in each category and their impact. Through an interactive exercise, delegates carry out their own health risk assessment and put together an action plan to monitor health risks.
Fitness for work
Examines the different types of non work- related conditions and how they can affect fitness for work. It discusses the importance of managing the fluctuations in people’s health status and the benefits of getting people back to work.
Delegates learn what a ‘wellbeing strategy’ includes and how the introduction and promotion of a wellbeing programme can influence and add value to an organisation.
