This briefing summarises NICE's recommendations for local authorities and partner organisations on improving workplace health. It is particularly relevant to health and wellbeing boards.
Work is a key determinant of health.
Local authorities can improve workplace health in two ways – in their own role as an employer, and also by encouraging and helping other employers to improve the health of their employees.
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) is an independent organisation providing guidance on the promotion of good health and the prevention and treatment of ill health.
