What is the Recognised Healthy Workplace Program?

The Recognised Healthy Workplace program was developed in partnership with Unions WA and Chamber of Commerce and Industry WA. The Program aims to recognise workplaces in WA that are demonstrating leadership in the area of workplace health and wellbeing by providing:

  • Supportive health and wellbeing policies and procedures (which are in addition to standard Occupational Health and Safety guidelines);
  • Facilities and infrastructure that encourage healthy behaviours; and
  • Education and awareness raising sessions, and activities that aim to improve the health and wellbeing of staff.

As part of the Recognised Healthy Workplace Program, workplaces can apply for Gold, Silver or Bronze Recognition. The level of recognition your workplace receives depends on the longevity and comprehensiveness of the Staff Health and Wellbeing Program. Every two years Recognised Healthy Workplaces are required to renew their status.

For more information on the application process, please visit the Apply for Recognition page of the HWWA webiste, or contact HWWA by email at
