With 1 in 5 Australian’s each year experiencing symptoms of a mental illness or episode, Action OHS Consulting will support your business to adopt a holistic approach, which focus’ on both physical and mental wellbeing.
Our health and wellbeing services
Action OHS Consulting understand that effective and sustainable health and wellbeing programs are:
- targeted to the organisation’s risks and needs
- resourced and supported
- monitored and evaluated, and
- continuously improved.
What this means is that the initial stage in the process to implement an effective Health and Wellbeing Program, is to conduct a Health and Wellbeing Audit, or “needs” assessment. This activity will assist Action OHS Consulting to source, interpret, assess and evaluate your businesses health and wellbeing data. It will assist us, in collaboration with you, to identify the most effective approach, and establish a strategy that will ensure that your Health and Wellbeing Program has alignment with the needs of your workforce, and is fit-for your businesses purpose.
The Health and Wellbeing Audit will see Action OHS Consulting provide you with an overview of activities and providers that will bring your Wellbeing Program to life – this may be via an annual, quarterly or monthly program. In addition, programs can be assembled for National Safe Work Month.
