Raising the bar for health

The London Health, Work and Well-being programme, with support from the Mayor of London, has developed a new film titled ‘Raising the bar for health’. The film captures the good practice of occupational health management on site of the Olympic Park and Olympic Village, but it also hopes to highlight and inspire similar investment in health at work across construction sites all over the UK.

The film ties in with an independent evaluation of the occupational health programme funded by the Olympic Delivery Authority and the Health and Safety Executive. The film includes an endorsement of the project by the Olympian Jonathan Edwards.

By summer 2012, over 40,000 people will have worked on the Olympic Park and Village. In that time, around 9,700 people have received safety critical medical checks with identified health conditions treated and supported to ensure continuation of employment on site. In addition over 2,000 people have been seen per month for health and well-being support.
