Wellbeing Support Service
This service supports schools in meeting their legal obligation to assess the risk associated with stress at work under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations.
Our health and safety professionals will facilitate the completion of a well being survey using the HSE’s Management Standards and help you to identify and define the characteristics and culture of your school to ensure the risks associated with work related stress are being effectively managed and controlled. They will also support school leaders in the development of an action plan that focuses on the implementation measures that will support a workforce who are happy and healthy.
In addition to this our health and safety professionals will also work with school leaders by preparing evidence to enable formal assessment for a Workplace Wellbeing Charter. The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is a statement of intent showing, organisation commitment to the health of the people who work for you.
Organisations using the Charter benefit in many ways including:
- The ability to Audit and Benchmark against an established and independent set of standards – identifying what the organisation already has in place and what gaps there may be in the health, safety and wellbeing of your employees.
- Developing strategies and plans – The Charter provides a clear structure that organisations can use to develop health, safety & wellbeing strategies and plans
National recognition – The Charter award process is robust and evidence based. With over 1,000 organisations across England holding the award, The Workplace Wellbeing Charter is now widely recognised as the business standard for health, safety & wellbeing across England. The award helps to strengthen the organisation’s brand & reputation and supports in sales and marketing activities. (www.wellbeingcharter.org.uk/Whats-Involved.php)
