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 and is a member of the HBGW Signatory Steering Group (SSG).

The SSG was established in January 2015 and comprises members from a range of stakeholders including statutory authorities, healthcare organisations, re/insurers and national employers, including ARPA. National. The purpose of the HBGW Australian SSG is to further champion the integration of the HBGW policy agenda in the industry sector. ARPA National is committed to devoting significant time and resources to the SSG and is committed to the increasing the awareness and adoption of the HBGW across all Australian workplaces, including promoting the benefits of becoming a signatory
