Make UK launches mental health & wellbeing seminars

Make UK, the manufacturers’ organisation, has launched a new seminar series, to help employers improve their management with mental health conditions, as it is one of the biggest challenges HR professionals face.

Managing employees with mental or physical ill health conditions, has become increasingly important in the workplace. Companies strive to maintain the balance of increasing productivity and maintain the wellbeing of their employees.

Legal, HR and occupational health expertise from Make UK, will collaboratively provide clear and practical guidance, on actively managing employee ill health, in the modern workplace.

The seminar is aimed for HR Professionals, Senior Line Managers and others with responsibility for managing those with ill health conditions & wellbeing programs. It will cover topics including:

  • How to proactively manage sickness absence.
  • How to deal with disability in the workplace.
  • Handling mental health and stress related problems.
  • Updating and monitoring policies and procedures, for physical and mental ill health.
  • How to adopt a wellbeing strategy with a return for employers and employees.

In addition, the series will take a practical approach to wellbeing strategies. Case studies will be demonstrated, to explain what steps an employer can take, in the event of a challenging mental health or absence issue, with its needs-based employee wellbeing program.

5 rules for effective incident reporting

Incident reporting is essential. No matter what steps are taken, training is given and precautions are taken, there will always be an element of accidents and incidents that occur in any environment.…things happen.

» Is a company still stuck in the 80s using an Incident Reporting book kept in reception gathering dust and presenting a GDPR nightmare?
» Has the company moved into the late 90s or even 00s and record things using Excel spreadsheets? (Did you know Excel is turning 33 this year?!)
» Is the company bang up to date with modern solutions allowing for efficiency and increased access and uptake of procedures?

Learn where your company falls on the scale above with this new whitepaper from Safety Media.

Looks like, same ole, same old reactive approach to mental health averse, a pro-active one by supporting even promoting “wellbeing” to prevent or at least mitigate presenteeism and risk of repetitive stress injuries, be they, physical and/or mental as the individual reaches the point of “adaptation exhaustion” and then manifesting seriously debilitating mental and/or physical health deficits / illness sufficient to require prolonged treatment or rehab….

Surely, identifying WEL across their activities to address foreseeable and predictable risks to their wellbeing prior to presentation of RSI’s, WRULD’s, MSD’s etc makes sense, doesn’t it ?
