Today is R U OK? Day, a national day of action when Australians are reminded to ask, “Are you OK?” if someone in their world is struggling with life’s ups and downs.
TruckSafe supports that as employers or staff, we can all create a culture where people feel confident asking and answering a simple, yet important question: “Are you ok?”
The mental health and wellbeing of workers should be considered as important as the duty of care organisations hold for an individuals physical safety. A conversation can make a real difference to staff going through a tough time.
R U OK? has released new resources to encourage more business leaders, owners and employees to build an R U OK? Culture in their workplace so that everyone feels safe, supported and encouraged.
The resources, including the R U OK? Workplace Champions Guide, promote peer-to-peer support and regular meaningful conversations amongst colleagues in the workplace.
View the resources and discover how you can become a workplace champion here.
