Workplace Health - Policies and Procedures

Workwell Hub and Mindful Employer are delighted to invite you to Dorset's Workplace Health and Wellbeing Forum.

At Work Well Hub we are passionate about creating healthy workplaces.  We believe that developing a workplace wellbeing culture isn’t rocket science, with a little structure and vision all organisations, no matter what size can create a great working environment in which people thrive not just survive. 

We also believe in sharing best practice, so with this in mind we created the Dorset workplace health and wellbeing forum that brings likeminded employers together to share best practice, provide ideas and tools to help improve, extend or introduce health and wellbeing into the workplace.

The forum is for business owners, senior managers, human resource, occupational health and health and safety professionals.

Our September Forum is on the topic of "The importance of supportive policies and procedures for workplace health and wellbeing”.

Workplace wellbeing relates to all aspects of working life, from the quality and safety of the physical environment, to how staff feel about their work. 

Under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 employers have a legal duty of care to protect the health and wellbeing of their staff. In this session we will look at the importance of policies and procedures for managing employee health and wellbeing and look at what can happen when things go wrong.

Our guest speaker for the session will be Rod Dutton of Jacobs Reeves. ‘Rod will talk about potential legal consequences where adequate procedures are not in place or are in place but not properly deployed’

Bookings for this event will open in July.

Employers Health and Wellbeing Forum

At Work Well Hub we are passionate about creating healthy workplaces. We believe that developing a workplace wellbeing culture isn’t rocket science, with a little structure and vision all organisations, no matter what size can create a great working environment in which people thrive not just survive.

We also believe in sharing best practice, so with this in mind we created the Dorset workplace health and wellbeing forum.

The forum takes place bi-monthly and brings likeminded employers together to share best practice, provide ideas and tools to help improve, extend or introduce health and wellbeing into the workplace and provide guest speakers to inform and educate on key topics. Meetings take place across Dorset and are always free to attend.

The forum is for business owners, senior managers, human resource, occupational health and health and safety professionals.

Our November Forum is on Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD's) in the workplace. According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) 8.9 million Working days were lost due to work-related musculoskeletal disorders in 2016/17 which cost the UK economy £14 billion.

To support this key topic we are delighted to announce our speakers for the MSD forum:

Joshua Smith of Life Balance Chiropractic Centre. Joshua will be speaking on the link between stress and musculoskeletal disorders in the workplace and will also be offering free one to one postural assessments to all delegates.

Stuart Entwistle of Osmond Ergonomics. Stuart will be discussing the importance of assessing employees who use display screen equipment (DSE) and looking at why they need to know how to use the devices safely to reduce the risk of musculoskeletal disorders (MSD’s)
