Who’s this course for?

Suitable for all types of business - office or heavy industrial. This course is for all managers, supervisors, Health and Safety  Reps and workers involved in Health & Safety.

What’s included?

  • The links between physical and psychological health; mental health and the sinking lid
  • Legal obligations and issues, including thresholds for prosecution relating to workplace stress, knowing what is a notifiable illness and your duty to monitor exposure, health and risks associated with hazards
  • Gradual process injuries, rehabilitation of long term injury or illness and problematic returns to work.

What you’ll learn:

Supporting the positive physical and mental health of your workers offers a raft of benefits. You’re more likely to retain valued employees, with their essential skills, knowledge and experience, and you’ll increase productivity overall. 

This workshop takes you beyond the perception of Health & Safety as solely about injury prevention and examines other significant contributors to workplace illness and even death. By giving you useful approaches to early detection and proven rehabilitation strategies, it will enhance workplace wellbeing, boost productivity and potentially save lives.

After, you’ll be able to…

  • Understand the duties associated with monitoring and managing risk
  • Comprehend the psychological barriers associated with long term absenteeism
  • Understand the varying roles in managing illness
  • Actively contribute to recovery and the process of returning to work after long term absence
  • Implement strategies that improve worker health and wellness.
