Composition of NSW Workforce for Get Healthy Service Engagement Package 2012
Client: NSW Ministry of Health (as part of a consortium led by Ragg Ahmed)
As part of the National Partnership Agreement on Preventative Health, the NSW Ministry of Health is responsible for implementing the Healthy Workers Initiative which aims to improve the health of adults aged between 35 and 55 who are in paid employment. The Healthy Workers Initiative supports workplaces in NSW to deliver health promotion programs that support behavioural change to prevent lifestyle related chronic diseases. To inform this larger project, the WRC undertook employer, employee and union consultation, as well as workplace case studies, to advise on the composition of, and issues relating to the Get Health Service Engagement package.
