Joining forces – Looking after Liverpool’s workers

The charity Health@Work and Liverpool Primary Care Trust (PCT) are launching a new well-being programme aimed at improving the health and fitness of workers in Liverpool businesses.

The two organisations will target 150 businesses based in Liverpool over the coming year, working with employers to improve the workplace environment, culture and health of employees.
The free Health, Work and Wellbeing (HWWB) programme ran successfully last year, giving 100 organisations and employees advice and guidance on improving diet, health and fitness in the workplace, putting in place health and safety policies and tackling work-related health problems.
Keith Gorman, programme manager at Health@Work, said: “The HWWB programme will give companies a complete health overhaul. We will submit questionnaires to staff first, in order to identify where improvements need to be made, before advising employers on what they can do to create a safe, healthy and productive working environment.
“Creating a healthy workplace will reduce workplace absence, lead to better motivated employees and in turn a more profitable company.”

What makes us susceptible to burnout?

In this episode  of the Safety & Health Podcast, ‘Burnout, stress and being human’, Heather Beach is joined by Stacy Thomson to discuss burnout, perfectionism and how to deal with burnout as an individual, as management and as an organisation.

We provide an insight on how to tackle burnout and why mental health is such a taboo subject, particularly in the workplace.
