IOSH Managing Occupational Health and Wellbeing

Managing health and well-being within an organization constitutes a multifaceted commitment dedicated to elevating the comprehensive welfare of its employees. This endeavor encompasses a broad spectrum, focusing on the physical, mental, and emotional dimensions of wellness. Crucially, the responsibility of ensuring this falls upon managers who bear the responsibility of cultivating an environment conducive to well-being.

However, a joint survey conducted by Management Today and IOSH unveiled a significant gap: 69% of managers lack the training needed to recognize signs of poor mental health in their workforce. Addressing this critical need, the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has formulated the "Managing Occupational Health and Wellbeing" program.

This initiative aims to equip managers with invaluable practical insights, advice, and tools essential for cultivating and nurturing a healthy and productive workplace atmosphere.
