A true safety and health culture relies on a strong safety program and worker well-being, according to a new white paper from the Campbell Institute at the National Safety Council.

The white paper includes the real-world experiences of nine institute member organizations and outlines the major successes and challenges encountered while their well-being programs were developed and maintained.

To create a well-being program that focuses on physical, mental, emotional, social and economic health, employers should:

  • Get input from stakeholders.
  • Create good communication and organized activities to engage employees.
  • Experiment with incentive structures.
  • Make the connection between well-being and safety.

“Employee health and well-being is not just an emerging topic, but one that is gaining momentum,” John Dony, director of the Campbell Institute and director of environmental, health, safety and sustainability at NSC, said in a press release. “As many Campbell Institute members have known for several years and want to share, maintaining a sustainable business requires moving beyond just workplace safety to include overall employee health and wellness.”
