Health and Safety

Rest, Rehydrate, Refuel 

The Healthy workplace, healthy you campaign aims to improve the health and wellbeing of the nursing workforce. As part of this campaign we are encouraging health and social care managers to ensure staff are taking their at-work breaks, are well hydrated and have access to nutritional food. We are also encouraging nursing staff to self-care and assert their right to a break.

The resources provide information, advice and tips about breaks at work, keeping hydrated and employers' responsibilities. You can also download posters to support and promote the campaign.
