Health and wellbeing

Discussion in the workplace
London South Bank University strongly believes that the workplace should promote good health and wellbeing

London South Bank University (LSBU) believes in the sanctity of a safe, healthy workplace. We have worked towards several initiatives and achievements to cement our commitment to creating a healthy workplace for all employees.

Fitter and healthier staff are less likely to take time off, and staff turnover is also likely to be reduced, so it has a positive impact on the bottom line. With work being such a huge part of our lives, who could argue about the importance of health and wellbeing whilst we are doing it?

LSBU has been recognised with bronze award from Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) for supporting colleagues and striving to make LSBU a safe place for all.

The RoSPA Awards are internationally recognised accolades awarded to businesses and organisations that have shown commitment to accident and ill-health prevention.

Head of Health, Safety and Resilience Ed Spacey said: "This award is another indication of our commitment to ensuring LSBU is a safe and supportive workplace for everyone who works and studies here.

"Of course, safety in the workplace or place of study is everyone’s responsibility and is an ongoing priority, so we will continue to improve with a view to achieving a silver award in the future."

Julia Small, RoSPA’s Head of Awards and Events, said: "To win an award at such a highly-regarded event as the RoSPA Awards is a great achievement for our winners. It recognises their commitment to maintaining an excellent health and safety record and raises the bar for other organisations to aspire to."

Accredited to the Healthy Workplace Charter

LSBU is a proud recipient of the London Healthy Workplace Charter Excellence Award, granted by the Mayor of London’s office.

This prestigious award was the culmination of a long but positive journey, which began in 2015 with the Commitment award and thereafter the Achievement award in 2016.

We submitted extensive evidence and attended a verification day at City Hall, which involved a presentation and in depth interviews.

The award validated our commitment to developing a culture of wellbeing that links to organisational outcomes, staff productivity and employee retention. It also helped to raise the profile of wellbeing by identifying strengths and weaknesses in 8 key areas, namely: corporate support for wellbeing, health and safety requirements, tobacco, healthy eating, attendance management, mental health, physical activity, alcohol and substance misuse.
