Health and wellness programs should be a part your company’s overall strategy for a healthy workplace.
Health and safety legislation and other workplace policies or programs can provide a basis for a workplace health program. When setting up any program, remember to include training and other support (e.g., time to attend sessions) and choices where possible.
Workplace health programs are a different from traditional health and safety programs because there is no legislative mandate. However, the purpose of a workplace health and wellness program is to offer a comprehensive health service for all employees, so it’s particularly important to remember that workers are potentially exposed to a wide variety of health hazards or situations on the job on a regular basis. It is impossible to deal with workplace health and wellness issues in isolation from health and safety, and vice versa.
