National Health and Welbeing at Work Conference

Date: 7 Mar 2018

Rachel Faulkner from Healthy Workplace Cornwall was asked to present at the National Health and Wellbeing at Work conference last week at the NEC Birmingham. 

Now in its 12th successful year, Health and Wellbeing at Work is all about improving the health and wellbeing of work-aged people. The conference and exhibition provides exciting new ideas and resources to ensure your employees are engaged and motivated, healthy, return to work quickly following absence and stay in work. Profiling national developments, service innovations, examples of best practice and the latest research, it provides an unrivalled learning platform that will energise and inspire.

 

Rachel's seminar was on:

'Tackling Workplace MSDs in SMEs - Challenges and Solutions' which featured some local Cornish case-studies. Please click here  to read the presentation.

Dame Carol Black,

"It is fantastic to see Cornwall and Isles of Scilly championing the health and work agenda and I look forward to seeing the Workplace Award act as a catalyst for further change in the county. Good health is good business and I encourage all employers that are serious about the agenda to apply for this confirmation of best practice." Dame Carol Black, National Director for Health and Work.
