Employers, in addition to social responsibility and the benefits to organisational health, have a legal duty of care to provide a safe workplace for their employees.2021 AusLSA Member PerformanceOverall, an organisations commitment to providing support for safe workplaces and healthy employees comprises a variety of different approaches to programs and initiatives including health checks andphysical fitness and wellbeing initiatives. Ninety two percent of firms again reported having a physical health and wellbeing policy or strategy. All but one member had allocated the responsibility to implement their policy to director or manager within the firm. Sixty-eight percent of these firms also involved workplace-based committees (up from 48 percent last 3 years) to help build broader participation and ownership in their program implementation. This also suggests a high social nature of these physical health activities. Firms tended to implement initiatives that focused on preventative measures by educating staff, providing health screenings or improving health and fitness programs to increase resilience. The most common physical wellness initiative, provided by all respondents, was the provision of specific ergonomic equipment, assessments and training.All firms provided flu shots however the percentage of firms providing health checks reduced from 72 percent to 68 percent of firms (most likely because of office disruptions). Workplace physical fitness programs including gym memberships, mat style and HIIT classes were also popular and were still provided by 89 percent of firms.
