Managing workers health - examples of good practice
The benefits of managing work-related health have been clearly demonstrated by a number of initiatives both on the railway and in similar industries. Being proactive not only protects workers health but it also benefits employers by reducing the costs and operational problems they would otherwise experience.
Examples of good practice and the health, cost and time benefits are available below and these will be added to as new examples are developed. Our aim in sharing these is to encourage the industry to improve health management and encourage a culture of excellence. If you know of any examples of good practice that could be shared as a case study please email details to Ian Gooday.
Other helpful information on managing work place health during construction projects has been published by the Olympic Delivery Authority and is available as micro reports and there is a full report on occupational health provision. The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) have a 'Li£e Savings' campaign to encourage better health and safety management. This includes a range of case studies.
