Health↔Work Questionnaire

Find out if you, your workers, line managers, and senior managers have got the health & work message


Two uses for the Health↔Work Questionnaire

  1. Find out whether workers and line managers understand the fundamental relationship between health and work. If the level is low, then you should ensure everyone gets ‘the knowledge’. This measure may provide justification for the resources needed.

  2. Measure improvement in understanding the relationship between health and work. For example, use it before and after. This can demonstrate cost-benefit from helping workers and managers getting ‘the knowledge’.
