Please book your place to our Workplace Health Conference & Award Ceremony.

cornwallbehealthyatwork.eventbrite.co.uk

We are delighted to be able to welcome back Professor Dame Carol Black - Expert Adviser on Health and Work - who in addition to presenting the awards, will be giving us the national overview and update on Workplace Health and Professor Anthony D Woolf who will be presenting on recent national evidence on Musculoskeletal Health in the Workplace.

We will have various workshops on;

  • Sugar
  • Mental Health
  • Sleep
  • Physical Activity

Following our workshops, the Workplace Health Award Ceremony aims to reward and recognise local workplaces in their achievement of the Workplace Health Award via Bronze, Silver, Gold & Mentor awards and also inspire new workplaces, which are just getting started.

The morning aims to:

  • Provide an national overview and update on Workplace Health
  • Provide some interactive workshops and activities for delegates to take back to workplaces
  • Provide information on forthcoming events such as the ‘Annual Cornwall Beach Games’, ‘Get Active’ and ‘Local Business Forums’
  • Provide networking opportunities and showcase local case studies from workplaces on our 'Wall of Fame'
  • A chance to visit local Health Stands on a variety of different topics to take back to your workplaces

To round off the morning, we'll provide you with a great healthy lunch before we close the event at 13.30.

*Please note, you do not have to be receiving an award to attend this conference, as it is also a great opportunity for you to talk to other workplaces and gain inspiration about how to proceed with your Healthy Workplace.

Booking will be made on a first-come-first-serve basis, so don't delay in securing your place. We ask that you book a maximum of 2 places per workplace, using the following link:

Costs

The annual cost of sickness absence and worklessness associated with working-age ill health in the UK is put at more than £100 billion (more than Portugal's GDP).

Sickness Absence

Depending on the context, workers who are off work for between 4 - 12 weeks have a 10-40% risk of being off work at one year
