How does your workplace measure up?

The Active Healthy Workplace (AHW) initiative is designed to raise understanding amongst employers/management & employees; of how likely it is that the workplace environment contributes to the overweight and obesity pandemic.

This initiative extends previous overweight and obesity strategies from individuals to the environments in which people live, work and play.

Given adults spend a large percentage of their time at work it makes sense to target the workplace setting.

Does the workplace provide a supportive environment for employees to lead active, healthy working lives?

So, ‘how does your workplace measure up?’ To find out, take a moment to try out the Active Healthy Workplace “checklist”.


We have links to relevant websites which offer examples of other healthy workplace initiatives & useful resources which include policy documents and workplace design guidelines.

This is an initiative of the Northern Sydney Central Coast Health Promotion Service.
