This is quite an exciting opportunity for WCD and we are all looking forward to being a part of this initiative as it reflects our daily work and our commitment to injured workers and their employers.
The purpose of the consensus is to bring together a wide range of stakeholder signatories, who each affirm the importance of work as a determinant of health and commit to:
Promoting awareness of the health benefits of work;
Offering support and encouragement to those attempting to access the health benefits of work;
Encouraging employers’ continuing support of workers’ occupational health; and
Advocating for continuous improvement in public policy around work and health, in line with the principles articulated in the consensus statement.
