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?
Roger Evans, Deputy Mayor of London
Bronze award from RoSPA
- 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 has been awarded the ‘Commitment’ level award of the London Healthy Workplace Charter, in recognition of its efforts towards creating a health-enhancing workplace.
This award recognises LSBU’s commitment to workplace health and wellbeing. LSBU joins over sixty employers who have achieved the award so far.
Commenting on LSBU securing the award, Deputy Mayor of London Roger Evans said:
"Congratulations to London South Bank University for being accredited to the Healthy Workplace Charter. Whether in the private or public sector, our hope is that many more employers will be inspired to sign up to the charter."
Having successfully reached the ‘Commitment’ level award, LSBU will now be implementing a strategy to secure the ‘Achievement’ award and, ultimately, the ‘Excellent’ award.
