The 32nd International Congress on Occupational Health (ICOH) is currently underway at the Convention Centre in Dublin, Ireland (April 29 – May 04, 2018). Today (May 03), IPH Director of Policy, Dr. Helen McAvoy will present findings from a public consultation for the Healthy Workplace Framework.
The Healthy Workplace initiative is an important part of driving the Healthy Ireland agenda. As there are over 2 million people employed in Ireland, the workplace can make an important contribution to healthier communities.
A consultation report is currently in development by IPH to reflect the views expressed in the consultation process. The consultation ran in spring of 2017 with both an online questionnaire and consultation workshops. The consultation report will make recommendations for consideration by the Steering Committee in terms of the final content of the Framework. The consultation report will be published alongside the final Framework.
