Safety & Wellbeing
Life’s better in a safe workplace and Epworth is committed to providing the highest level of protection to employees, volunteers, contractors and members of the public on all of our sites. Helping people is what we do, and that starts with the safety and wellbeing of our staff.
Epworth recently developed a safety campaign to reduce employee injury and illness, targeting the safety issues that come from working in a busy, fast paced hospital. This campaign was uniquely designed to engage staff, and has reduced injuries and lost work time by 35% while receiving wide praise from our employees.
Epworth’s significant investment in workplace health and safety, and the innovative approach taken in our recent workplace health and safety campaign, is reflective of our core principle – that the staff are the most important component of Epworth.
