Health & Wellbeing

Health & Wellbeing

The success of any organisation depends to a great extent on the individual performance of each member of its staff, and this is often related to the health and general well- being of the individual. University of Worcester recognises that good health depends on a combination of both physical and mental well-being it therefore seeks to maintain a working environment and sets policies together with procedures and systems that are designed to support the health and well-being of all its employees. It must be remembered that each individual retains primary responsibility for his/her own health and well-being, and it is therefore up to us to take reasonable care of ourselves, and to draw to the attention of the University any aspect of our work which is potentially damaging.
