Healthy Working Lives is an organisation that provides employers in Scotland with workplace health, safety and wellbeing information.
It is a free and confidential NHS service to help employers understand, protect and improve the health and wellbeing of their workforce. It can also help to support employees with health problems to remain in work or return to work.
Healthy Working Lives’ programmes and services are delivered by NHS Health Scotland, a national health board, in partnership with Scotland’s 14 local NHS Boards.
