​Healthy Working Lives has produced two guides to help employers manage health, safety and employee wellbeing.

Health Profits is an introductory guide to protecting and improving employee health. It contains a wealth of information and tools to support the development of good health in the workforce and the achievement of the business benefits this can bring.

Safer Work, Healthier Business is intended to help businesses plan and put in place a health and safety management system. It helps you to:

  1. 1. identify your legal requirements
  2. 2. develop an annual action plan
  3. 3. implement the action plan
  4. 4. develop a system for monitoring and reviewing
  5. 5. store relevant policies procedures, assessments, inspection reports etc. in a manageable file.

Given its size, Safer Work, Healthier Business is not currently available to download, but can be ordered from the Adviceline on 0800 019 2211.
