NEBOSH Working with Wellbeing
The NEBOSH Working with Wellbeing qualification is a one day course aimed at those who have a responsibility for management of health and wellbeing in the workplace, have a general interest in wellbeing or would like to begin a career incorporating wellbeing. This training would be beneficial for those in health and safety, human resources or those with management responsibilities such as managers or supervisors.
It is now widely recognised that wellbeing amongst employees in the workplace is important. Not only do employers have a duty not to harm their employee’s health and wellbeing through the course of their work but it is also beneficial to the business to help employees who are suffering from poor wellbeing due to circumstances outside the workplace. It is natural that an employee’s work may suffer if their wellbeing isn’t at its optimum and therefore productivity may decline. By improving wellbeing employees may be more engaged and satisfied at work preventing high staff turnover, absence rates, accident and injury rates and potential litigation.
Those who undertake the NEBOSH health & wellbeing certificate course should be able to make a positive influence on wellbeing in the workplace health through our holistic approach. You will be introduced the wellbeing tree concept that covers the topics of interaction, kindness, nutrition, exercise and mindfulness.
Element one of the NEBOSH Working With Wellbeing course covers the foundations of wellbeing, giving an official definition of wellbeing but also discussing the difficulties in defining wellbeing due to its subjectiveness. We will be exploring the interconnectivity of aspects of wellbeing and the business benefits of wellbeing consideration. We will discuss some of the social expectations placed on business and how wellbeing can boost reputation and contribute to corporate social responsibility. We will go into detail on the effect of wellbeing on employees and the implications for the business.
In element two we will be introducing some of the areas of wellbeing and the concept of the wellbeing tree and the branches that contribute to overall workplace health and wellbeing and that a balance is necessary to achieve this. The branches we will cover are interaction, mindfulness, kindness, nutrition, and exercise. We will discuss the benefits of these branches to wellbeing and the impact to both the business and individual if any of these branches are neglected.
