Differences between WHS and wellbeing

WHS is about preventing workers being harmed at work. 

Initiatives to improve workers’ wellbeing, (e.g. meditation classes or encouraging healthy eating and regular exercise) can have positive impacts. However, they do not protect workers from harm from psychosocial or physical hazards. 

If you aren’t sure whether something is a WHS control measure or a wellbeing initiative consider whether it is preventing harm from the work.
