WorkSafe Victoria’s WorkWell Program

WorkSafe’s WorkWell Program supports workplace leaders to prevent mental injury and promote safe and mentally healthy workplaces, taking an evidence-based approach to positive system-level change. Championing workplace leaders and employers as change makers, Workwell provides access to opportunities for knowledge sharing, funding and resources – known as the ‘Learning Networks’, the ‘Mental Health Improvement Fund’ and the ‘Toolkit’ respectively;

  1. WorkWell Toolkit

A free tool helping you to build a positive and mentally healthy workplace. The Toolkit brings together resources and ideas that have worked for businesses just like yours. The WorkWell team have gone beyond the standard OH&S material to develop some engaging and relatable content to help everyone make their workplace physically, psychologically, socially and emotionally safe.

  1. WorkWell Mental Health Improvement Fund

Promoting mental health and wellbeing and preventing mental injury for vulnerable working populations by changing workplace culture and practices.

  1. WorkWell Learning Networks

Bringing workplaces and experts together to share ideas, knowledge and provide advice and support to workplaces to implement initiatives that create safe and mentally healthy environments for identified Victorian working populations.

Chiropractic Australia is proud to support the WorkWell initiative and it’s evidence-based approach to preventing mental injury and creating safe and mentally healthy workplaces in Victoria.

As an evidence-based organisation, representing over 1400 members in the allied health sector nationally, the safety and well-being of all chiropractic professionals – and the patients they provide care for – is our preeminent priority. As such, Chiropractic Australia supports regional public health orders and data-informed suppression strategies in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, including the recent introduction of mandatory vaccinations for primary contact health workers – including chiropractic practitioners – across all of Tasmania and selected local government areas of concern in New South Wales.
As is the case for every long-standing organisation, it is necessary to periodically review, recalibrate and reinvigorate strategic direction; and Chiropractic Australia is no different. Outlined in our 2021/2024 Strategic Plan, we have embraced the need for change and myriad of opportunities before us to ensure the continued legacy of member service and support that has been synonymous with our association for the last 27 years. The exciting operational developments made throughout 2020 and 2021, as well as those forthcoming, ensure the bright future of Chiropractic Australia rests upon a robust organisational footing.
A report released this week by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) Australian Burden of Disease Study 2018: key findings, reveals that Australians overall health is improving. However, the report notes that 5 disease groups caused the most burden with musculoskeletal complaints accounting for 13% of the burden, second only to cancer at 18%. Injuries accounted for 8.4%. These findings support previous international reports that have shown that back pain is the leading cause of disability globally, and chiropractors are well placed to assist with both musculoskeletal problems and other modifiable risk factors.
