We spend a third of our lives at work, so it is crucial to both our physical and mental well-being that this is a positive experience. But what does well-being in the workplace look like and how can you achieve it? At the UWA Centre for Safety, we recognise that well-being means not only remedying ill-health, but also promoting positive wellbeing. Organisational programs and cultures that are committed to fostering well-being, on top of preventing ill health will reap the benefits of a safer, more productive and engaged workforce.

Join the UWA Centre for Safety for breakfast, as we explore different perspectives on the impact of well-being at work, and the role of a proactive approach towards healthy and safe work.
