Health Benefits of Good Work

ARPA's Role in the Promoting of Health Benefits of Good Work

The Health Benefits of Good Work (HBGW) is an initiative from the Australasian Faculty of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (AFOEM) of The Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP). This initiative is based on compelling Australasian and international evidence that good work is beneficial to people’s health and wellbeing and that long term work absence, work disability and unemployment generally have a negative impact on health and wellbeing.

The Australian Rehabilitation Providers Association is a proud signatory to the HBGW.
