The Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Healthy Workplace Award

 

How we do it

Award Criteria

There are three levels to the Award - Bronze, Silver and Gold so people can be rewarded for progress. It encourages people to celebrate each of their achievements. In March 2012 a new ‘Mentor Award’ was also launched for those who have already achieved Gold.
 
The new Mentor Award recognises businesses who are willing, or already helping other workplaces on their journey to improving the Health and Wellbeing of their staff. We are fortunate that many workplaces in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly feel passionately about the benefits that can be felt and want to share their experience.
 
We use an online self assessment process as businesses tell us this is the easiest and best way to start off. Following this the assessment team will make a booked visit to talk through what you want to achieve and confirm the required criteria is met. The assessment team award usually look at a range of documents and speak to staff members to get a good understanding of how you are doing, collect award evidence and offer advice.

The Healthy Workplace Team have produced an annual summary report which we hoped would be of interest to you as close partners and supporters of our Healthy Workplace Programme

Cancer and Work
Cancer kills around 1.2 million people each year in the European Union. Between
65 000 and 100 000 of these deaths are believed to be directly caused by working conditions. Others are the result of environmental exposures which, in many cases, are themselves related to firms’ business activities.

“When we think of young people’s health, we think of schools being a key space for engagement, for adults the workplace is a similar space”- Dr Justin Varney, Public Health England Programme Lead for Health and Work.
