As part of the Recognised Healthier Workplace Program, workplaces can apply for Gold, Silver or Bronze Recognition.
Does your workplace health and wellbeing program:
Have support from senior management?
Have a dedicated Program Coordinator who has undertaken HWWA Coordinator Training (either face-to-face or online) within the last 2 years, and have they consulted with staff?
Address lifestyle risk factors: smoking; unhealthy eating; physical inactivity and sedentary behaviour; and alcohol?
Implement strategies that include: health and wellbeing policy; the physical work environment; and education and awareness raising activities?
If yes, then your workplace may be eligible for Recognition from the Recognised Healthy Workplace Program. Our 'Becoming a Recognised Healthy Workplace' video or our FAQ - Recognised Healthy Workplace blog can provide you with a step-by-step of the recognition application process.
Successful workplaces will receive either Gold, Silver or Bronze Recognition. The level of Recognition your workplace may receive depends on: how long the health and wellbeing program has been running for; how many SNAP topic areas are addressed; and the combination of strategies (policy, environment and education) implemented.
Once workplaces have completed their online submission, senior management will be required to validate the information provided in the application before Recognition can be approved. When completing the RHW Application Form, it is preferred that the nominated Senior Manager is not also listed at the Program Coordinator. However, if this is unavoidable, you will be asked to submit additional information to support your application.
Please note, workplaces applying for Gold Recognition will be required to submit their implemented action plan (and any other documentation as requested) to HWWA for review. To be eligible for Gold Recognition, workplaces will also be required to have no designated smoking areas on-site.
Mandatory items for all applications to the Recognised Healthy Workplace Program include:
Recognition from the Recognised Healthy Workplace Program is valid for two years. At the end of this period, workplaces wishing to continue their Recognition will be required to re-submit their application.
