    Workplace health investment welcomed

    Workplace health investment welcomed

    The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has welcomed Chancellor George Osborne’s promise to invest more money in workplace health.

    The Chancellor used his Autumn Statement and Spending Review to reveal more funds will be invested in helping the disabled and those with health conditions to get jobs and stay in work.

    It is hoped the move will help 25,000 additional people with disabilities stay in work every year.

    ‘Funding will help the economy’

    The funding will also help extend the Fit for Work service. It aims to help those on long-term sick leave plan for their return to work.

    The investment pledge includes £115 million for the Joint Work and Health Unit with more than a third of the money set to develop new links between health and employments systems.

    IOSH’s head of policy and public affairs, Richard Jones, said the investment will benefit workers and help boost the UK economy.

    He mentioned properly managing workplace health issues makes for healthier employees while sustaining an inclusive and diverse workforce.

    And that, he adds, is good for not only individual workers but for employers and the country as a whole.

    White Paper planned

    The Government, meanwhile, is working on a White Paper that will detail the reforms needed to improve the support that disabled and sick workers get to help them get and stay in work. It is set to be published early next year.

    Mr Osborne has also said an extra £600 million will be poured into Britain’s mental health services to help more people get the treatment they require.
