New Year, New Home for Healthy Working Lives

Healthy Working Lives has launched its new website, allowing businesses across Scotland to access personalised advice to improve the health, safety and wellbeing of their workforce.

The new home of health, safety and wellbeing is packed with interactive features. And its fresh and concise new content structure will make it easier for businesses to find what they need, when they need it.

Aileen Simpson, NHS Health Scotland’s head of health and work services, said: “Good workplace health, safety and wellbeing practice isn’t just good for employees – it’s good for business too. And by promoting good work, employers can also help tackle health inequalities which are widest for people of working age.

“The website helps businesses with practical tasks such as developing a health and safety policy or completing a return to work form. It’s simple guides on a range of topics also provide businesses with practical tips and advice on how to keep their workforces healthy and happy.”

Healthy Working Lives is a free and confidential NHS service, delivered by NHS Health Scotland in partnership with Scotland’s 14 local NHS Boards.

One of the site’s highlights is the ability for people to create a personalised health and safety action plan for their business.
