Health at Work Network

The core commitment, “We will actively support our workforce to lead healthier lives”, provides a framework for the work of the network.

The network is chaired by Dame Carol Black, Expert Adviser on health and well-being at work for the Department of Health. Earl Howe, Parliamentary under-Secretary of State for Quality provides Ministerial support.

The network is comprised of a plenary group, overseeing the work of the network, and task specific sub-groups as required. The members of the sub-groups are drawn from our health at work partners.

See members of the plenary group

See papers from the health at work network plenary group

Please go to the ‘Pledges’ tab for a list of partners signed up to the health at work pledge

Several guides to help employers and employees manage their health and well-being at work is also available

Updates on the work of the network will be published on this website. Interested in becoming involved in our work? Contact:
