Healthy workers including office administration staff, apprentices, sub-contractors and site managers play a vital role in the building and construction industry. Business costs due to sick days, unsafe work practices and disconnected workers are likely to be reduced when a workplace is supported by a comprehensive health and wellbeing program that can be tailored to the business.
Healthier Workplace WA support building and construction workplaces to develop, implement and evaluate health and wellbeing programs suitable to their workplace whether in one location or across the state.
Working closely with peak body organisations and industry leaders ensures support and resources are easily accessible and relevant.
"Despite being a construction site, we offer shower and change room facilities to all staff so that they can be active. We know that it’s essential to our business for our workers to be healthy."
Michael Farmer, Health & Safety Manager, Leighton Broad
