New Zealand Consensus Statement on the Health Benefits of Work

FairWay is pleased to announce that it endorses the Australasian Faculty of Occupational and Environmental Medicine’s Consensus Statement on the Health Benefits of Work.
At the heart of this consensus statement regarding the health benefits of work is a shared desire to improve the welfare of individuals, families and communities.  We acknowledge the fundamental principles about the relationship between health and work.

FairWay is committed to its staff, our clients and customers’ Health and Safety and Wellbeing at work.  At FairWay we demonstrate our commitment through our Health and Safety Charter, and our policies and procedures. One of the initiatives we have been working on is now in place and last month FairWay’s Board agreed to us becoming a signatory of the New Zealand Consensus Statement on the Health Benefits of Work.

There is compelling evidence that work is generally good for health and wellbeing, and that long term work absence, work disability and unemployment generally have a negative impact on health and wellbeing.
