Kate Field, Head of Information and Intelligence“As a founder member of Great Britain Health and Wellbeing Week, IOSH is putting the spotlight on health by supporting employers who want to raise the issue with their workforces, supply chains and wider communities.

While the week encourages businesses to arrange workplace wellbeing activities to enhance employees’ general physical and mental health, there’s a strong focus on health risk management – ensuring that employees are not made physically or mentally ill by their work.

During the week, IOSH will be launching a new guide on ‘Occupational health management in the workplace’, which focuses on health risks and how to choose an occupational health supplier.”
