The Campbell Institute, the National Safety Council center of excellence for environmental, health and safety management, released a white paper that establishes that a proper work culture consisting of health and safety relies not only on a strong safety program, but one that also focuses on worker wellbeing, entitled, “Workplace Wellbeing: Bridging Safety and Health.”
The report consists of the real-world experiences of nine Institute members, outlining the major successes and challenges experienced when developing and maintaining their workplace wellbeing programs.
The nine members—consisting of BNSF, Cummins, ISN, Mosaic, NASA, Norfolk Southern, Owens Corning, United Rentals and USG—have all contributed to the Institute’s pursuits.
“Employee health and wellbeing is not just an emerging topic, but one that is gaining momentum,” says John Dony, Director of the Campbell Institute and Director of environmental, health, safety and sustainability at the National Safety Council. “As many Campbell Institute members have known for several years and want to share, maintaining a sustainable business requires moving beyond just workplace safety to include overall employee health and wellness.”
