This PAS provides recommendations to establish, promote, maintain and review the health and wellbeing of workers within an organization. It considers how health and wellbeing are incorporated into the working environment and how leadership is demonstrated by way of health and wellbeing related services available.
This PAS presents five key principles to form the basis of an organization’s approach:
capitalize on diversity and inclusion as an organizational strength;NOTE
Unfairness is a key hazard at work.
proactively support the physical and psychological health and wellbeing of workers;
foster a work culture that offers strong, ethical relationships, a collaborative and communicative management style, and an organizational culture in which learning and development are encouraged;
ensure jobs are designed so that they offer meaningful work; and
support good people management policies and practices.
This PAS is applicable to any organization regardless of size, type and nature. The target audience of the PAS is top management within large organizations but it could also be of use to small and medium-sized enterprises and worker representatives.
The recommendations in this PAS are not intended to replace the legal requirements placed on the organization by relevant health, safety and wellbeing legislation.
The recommendations in this PAS go beyond an organization’s workers and also impact, for example users of a service and former workers.
