WorkSafe Victoria has launched a WorkHealth initiative to improve the health of the Victorian workers and the productivity of workplaces.

The initiative offers voluntary programs to promote health and wellbeing through free, confidential and convenient health checks.

Employers can participate in one of two opportunities – worker health checks and workplace health promotion grants.

The benefits of providing health checks include:
• They're fast and they happen in the workplace 

• They encourage workers to learn about the state of their health and recommend actions that are easy and practical to implement 

• They give employers the chance to kick–start health and wellbeing programs in the workplace 

• By participating in health checks, workers get to learn more about their risk of heart disease and type two diabetes. 



WorkHealth checks look at factors that impact on personal health such as diet, exercise, smoking and alcohol consumption.
