Survey on best practice in managing health problems at work

The Health and Safety Laboratory is currently seeking views on managing common health problems in the workplace to identify the types of support and guidance needed in this area.

The “common” problems highlighted by the HSL include physical complaints, such as muscle and joint pain, mental-health problems, stress, and others linked to sickness absence, health-related benefit claims, and reduced productivity.

The HSL is inviting those who actively manage health issues at work, as well as experts in research or policy in this field, to take part in a 10-question online survey, the responses to which will be treated in the strictest confidence. The survey is part of a HSE-funded project to develop guidance and a toolkit to minimise the occurrence of and manage common health problems at work.
