Dame Carole Black - Visit to Australia
By Dame Carole Black
Professor Dame Carol Black is widely known for her new approach
to work-related health services after her review ‘Working for a healthier tomorrow’ found that ill health was costing the United Kingdom £100 billion annually.
Please listen to this recording from her recent visit to SA where she spoke at a breakfast event brought to you by the Mental Health Coalition of South Australia and Business SA. There Dame Carol described the range of approaches taken in the United Kingdom from 2005 when a National Health, Work and Well-being strategy was published.
These have focused on identifying factors and changes necessary – particularly in the workplace – to safeguard and improve the health of working people. The crucial nature of organisational culture and the quality of management will also be discussed.
