Seminar Outline

Implementing Wellbeing Strategies in the Workplace is a half day workshop running from 09.30hrs to 13.00hrs, organised by National Irish Safety Organisation (NISO).

National Irish Safety Organisation, in conjunction with Healthy Ireland, is running a half day workshop on Implementing Wellbeing Strategies in the Workplace. Under the auspices of Healthy Ireland, the Department of Health, in partnership with the Department of Enterprise, Business and Innovation, developed the National Healthy Workplace Framework which was launched in December 2021.

There is 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, was integrated into the All Ireland Occupational Safety Awards from 2019. It provides an opportunity to demonstrate commitment to the health and wellbeing agenda across the organisation.

The workshop is designed to support workplaces that are interested in addressing health and wellbeing and aims to explore the enablers and barriers to guide implementation in their organisations.
