Abstract:
Presents compelling international and Australasian evidence that work is generally good for health and wellbeing, and that long term work absence, work disability and unemployment generally have a negative impact on health and wellbeing. 

The purpose of the consensus statement is to bring together a wide range of stakeholder signatories, who each affirm the importance of work as a determinant of health and commit to:
  • Promoting awareness of the health benefits of work;
  • Offering support and encouragement to those attempting to access the health benefits of work; 
  • Encouraging employers’ continuing support of workers’ occupational health; and
  • Advocating for continuous improvement in public policy around work and health, in line with the principles articulated in the consensus statement.
