Apply for Recognition

As part of the Recognised Healthier Workplace Program, workplaces can apply for Gold, Silver or Bronze Recognition.

If yes, then your workplace may be eligible for Recognition from the Recognised Healthy Workplace Program.

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 with be required to validate the information provided in the application before Recognition can be approved. Workplaces applying for Gold Recognition will also be required to submit their implemented action plan (and any other documentation as requested) to HWWA for review. Please note, 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:

  • Senior Management Support;
  • A dedicated Program Coordinator who has undertaken HWWA Coordinator Training (either face-to-face or online);
  • Staff Consultation; and
  • An implemented Action Plan.

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.
