Good work: Good health
The council carries out health & safety inspections of local businesses. Where a business employs 50 or more people, the company must have a stress at work risk assessment etc.
The Good work: Good health charter is being awarded to committed businesses by New Economy Manchester.
We wanted to promote the charter to local businesses employing 50 employees or more. There is a self-assessment booklet which contains a section on mental health and wellbeing, health & safety requirements and leadership. There are 8 parts in total.
This piece of work will feed back into Tameside and Glossop’s NHS strategy, which targets everyone – children, adults, families, older people. Mental wellbeing in Tameside is poorer than regional and national averages.
