Why take the Challenge?
A healthy workplace is more than just ergonomics and workers safety, a healthy workplace incorporates strategies and policies for good mental health and wellbeing.
Despite our growing awareness of mental health and wellbeing people living with mental illness or mental health struggles still experience stigma in the workplace. A mentally healthy workplace is not just an aspiration, it is a legal requirement for employers with rights and responsibilities under anti-discrimination, privacy, and work health and safety legislation.
According to Safework Australia, mental stress are the most expensive compensation claims with Australian businesses paying out $146million each year. To help us all overcome this we’re partnering with the Mental Health Coalition of SA in the 5 Day Workplace Challenge.
This Challenge are five very simple things your workplace can do start us all thinking about mental health and wellbeing.
