Health Benefits of Work

WCD have been advised that they have been accepted as signatories to the Health Benefits of Good Work Consensus Statement

This now allows WCD to nominate to form part of the government steering committees considering public policy in this regard.

This is actually quite an exciting opportunity for WCD and we are all looking forward to being a part of this initiative as it reflects our daily work and our commitment to injured workers and their employers.

The purpose of the consensus is to bring together a wide range of stakeholder signatories, who each affirm the importance of work as a determinant of health and commit to:

  • Promoting awareness of the health benefits of work;
  • Offering support and encouragement to those attempting to access the health benefits of work;
  • Encouraging employers’ continuing support of workers’ occupational health; and
  • Advocating for continuous improvement in public policy around work and health, in line with the principles articulated in the consensus statement.
