WHS and OHS: New partnership focuses on workers health and safety

The Safety Institute of Australia and OzHelp have recently announced a partnership focusing on health and safety in the workplace.

OzHelp’s new ‘Workplace Tune-Up’ is an innovative physical and mental health online screening tool that provides business leaders and employees with immediate health and wellbeing results, evidence based benchmarks and personalised recommendations that are accompanied by immediate WTU generated support channels including prompted responses from OzHelp registered nurses, wellbeing coaches with links to respective EAP providers.

OZhelp’s CEO, Tony Holland said: “We look forward to exploring the many ways of working with the SIA over time with the common purpose of saving and improving lives in Australian workplaces.”

“In the case of the workplace tune-up tool, we have federal funding for high risk industries and these correlate well with the focus of the SIA.”

 The WTU will generate for employers an industry benchmarked easy to read de-identified report, that provides a snapshot of the overall health of employees to inform, identify and evaluate wellbeing strategy activities.

“We are pleased to join forces with an advocate in health and safety and will work closely with OzHelp to support businesses in providing workers a healthy wellbeing business culture,” said SIA CEO David Clarke.

The program is endorsed through funding by the Australian Government Department of Health, state governments, Nutrition Australia, and the Heart Foundation.
