A revised Consensus Statement on the Health Benefits of Work was released earlier this week of which ANZSOM is a signatory. The revised consensus statement refocuses the approach from return to work to ‘good work’ as a preventative factor for promoting health and wellbeing. We see these changes as an important step forward in the discussions about work and health. Contact AFOEM Executive officer, Rumbi Mabambe should you have any questions regarding the revised consensus statement.
