Health, safety and wellbeing for workplaces

Queensland Government agencies play a crucial role in the health, safety and wellbeing (HS&W) of their employees. HS&W workplace programs and practices not only have the potential to positively influence our workforce and their families, they also make good business sense. They can:

  • increase employee engagement and morale
  • lead to reduced absenteeism
  • increase productivity and innovation.

The Queensland public sector's Be healthy, be safe, be well framework identifies 4 organisational levers that can improve HS&W outcomes in agencies. These are leadership, culture, work design and work environment.

Find out what workplace programs and practices support these organisational levers, and what your agency can do to improve HS&W outcomes . There are also case studies available to show what workplaces have done in this area.
