Get Healthy at Work aims to improve the health of working adults by giving businesses the tools, resources and support to address six health focus areas:

  • Healthy weight
  • Physical activity
  • Healthy eating
  • Active travel (walking, cycling or catching public transport to work)
  • Smoking
  • Harmful alcohol consumption
Regardless of industry or business size, Get Healthy at Work makes it easy for businesses to identify the biggest health issues facing their workplace and help them make changes for the better.

Free services:

Workplace Health Program support

All the tools, templates and resources a business needs to develop a simple action plan to address a priority health issue at their workplace. The program is available online, over the phone or on-site with the support of a workplace health expert. Online tools are available to help businesses to continuously review and improve health issues, one by one.

Brief Health Checks

A free and confidential service for workers completed either online or by a health practitioner at the workplace. It takes just 15 minutes and offers immediate feedback on an individual's risk of developing type 2 diabetes and heart disease. The Brief Health Check links workers with a range of existing services such as GP's, the Get Healthy Information and Coaching Service and NSW Quitline.
