Promoting Health and Wellbeing in the Workplace is a half day workshop running from 09.30hrs to 13.15hrs, organised by National Irish Safety Organisation (NISO) in conjunction with Healthy Ireland.

Overview
Under the auspices of Healthy Ireland, the Department of Health, in partnership with the Department of Enterprise, Business and Innovation, are leading the development of a National Healthy Workplace Framework. This is in response to the growing evidence that workplaces have a key role in promoting health and wellbeing among employees which is critical for the welfare of workers, levels of productivity and economic growth.

To recognise workplaces that have made significant progress in promoting health and wellbeing, the Healthy Workplace Award, sponsored by Healthy Ireland, will be integrated into the All Ireland Occupational Safety Awards from 2019. It will provide an opportunity for you to demonstrate your commitment to the health and wellbeing agenda across the organisation.


Workshop Objectives

This workshop is designed to support workplaces that are interested in progressing this agenda and participants will:

  • Develop an understanding of the core elements of a healthy workplace
  • Identify health and wellbeing activity in their own workplace
  • Understand the steps involved in developing a workplace health and wellbeing plan

The workshop will also include a practical case study from a local worksite that has Health and Wellbeing as a priority in their organisation.
