Fruit on work desk

A consultation report on developing a Healthy Workplace Framework published by the Department of Health (ROI). The report was prepared for the Department of Health by the Institute of Public Health in Ireland (IPH). 

The IPH facilitated the online consultation and hosted events in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Sligo which invited stakeholders to share their views and experience on creating a healthy workplace. The consultation report will be considered by the Department to inform the development of the Healthy Workplace Framework, which is expected to be published later in 2019. 

The aim of the Framework is to recognise and enhance existing initiatives, to facilitate the sharing of experience and learning, and also provide the necessary supports and tools for organisations or companies who haven’t yet developed their own resources. 

The Framework sits under Healthy Ireland and is intended to provide a supportive, flexible, evidence-based structure that can be applied across all workplaces in Ireland regardless of their sector or size. The IPH is continuing to support the Department with this important Framework in the areas of policy design, implementation and monitoring
