Mental health & wellbeing

Well designed and managed workplaces can play a beneficial role in promoting worker health and wellbeing, minimising ill health and facilitating a faster recovery and return to work after injury or illness.


The World Health Organisation defines a healthy workplace as one in which workers and managers collaborate to use a continuous improvement process to protect and promote the health, safety and wellbeing of all workers and the sustainability of the workplace.


A mentally healthy workplace can have a positive impact on productivity, performance and staff retention. Groups like MATES in Construction operate to reduce suicide and improve mental health within the construction industry and beyondblue works to reduce the impact of depression and anxiety in the community.


The workplace is increasingly being used as a setting for health promotion and preventative health activities to prevent workplace injury and to assess and improve people’s overall health.
