CCOHS launches website to bring health, work, wellness together

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has released a new Healthy Workplaces website that brings together some of the best information, tools and resources available to help employers, workers and practitioners participate in making their workplaces healthy and safe.
“The impact of a healthy workplace is far reaching and extends beyond the business benefits. We know there is a strong connection between the health and well-being of people and their work environments,” said Gareth Jones, acting president and CEO at CCOHS. “We hope to inspire and encourage businesses and organizations to create workplace cultures in which the health, safety and total well-being of their employees is paramount, that everyone may thrive and benefit.”

A healthy and productive workplace culture that creates an environment which promotes employee mental and physical health, as well as productivity and organizational effectiveness, can benefit employers and employees alike, said CCOHS.

Featuring a mobile friendly layout and design, Healthy Workplaces provides a single point of access to credible information on topics related to creating healthy workplaces such as active living, aging workers, occupational diseases, ergonomics and mental health. 

The information on the site is organized by topics, roles (employee, employer or practitioner) and resource types, to make finding information easy. Available tools and resources include programs, case studies, policies, publications, articles, videos, presentations and fact sheets.
