Mental health issues can occur in a variety of settings whether it is at home, in the community or in the workplace.
Umwelt Environmental & Social Consultants is a national company with professionals located across NSW, ACT, WA and QLD.
This year Umwelt Environmental & Social Consultants is nominated as a finalist in the ‘Best Health & Wellbeing Program’ category at the 2019 Hunter Safety Awards.
"Umwelt’s values matter and a key focus is ‘Our People’," chief operating officer Jonathan Allan said.
"We recognise that the mental health of our employees is key to the success of the business both in the safety of the team across a range of working conditions and the quality of services provided."
To support positive health and the wellbeing of the team, Umwelt have introduced a suite of initiatives, made up of the following components:
- Workplace Mental Health Masterclass for leaders – rolled out to leaders across the business
- QPR on-line training program (suicide prevention training) – available for employees to nominate themselves to complete
- ASIST training (intense two day suicide prevention training program) – two key employees nominated to attended
"Safety in the workplace is never achieved alone," Mr Allan said.
