Webinars for wellbeing – new series

Typically, each October, Healthier Work marks National Safe Work Month and Mental Health Month ACT with a Healthier Work Day forum.

With the challenges presented by COVID-19, we’re taking a slightly different approach in 2020.

We’re excited to announce our second webinar series for 2020, commencing in National Safe Work Month and continuing into November. In this series we’re working closely with our colleagues here at WorkSafe ACT to bring you the latest information and guidance on current workplace health, safety and wellbeing topics.

Further details on each webinar topic and speaker are provided on each webinar’s registration page.
