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 (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. Workplaces are required to renew their Recognised Healthy Workplace status every two years. Click here for more information about the assessment requirements for Gold, Silver and Bronze Recognition.

Becoming recognised has many benefits for both employers and employees. Recognised Healthy Workplaces often enhance their business reputation by making their workplace an employer of choice, and assists to grow workplace culture by demonstrating a commitment to health and wellbeing.

For more information on the application process, please visit Apply for Recognition, or contact HWWA by email at HWWA@cancerwa.asn.au.
