CSA19-The Offshore Petroleum Regulator for Environment & Decommissioning - Healthy Working Lives Committee

The OPRED Healthy Working Lives Committee collaborates to deliver a programme of diverse and appealing health promotional campaigns and activities which reflect the priorities of over 100 colleagues. Since 2015, the team has successfully achieved Bronze, Silver and Gold level awards in the NHS Healthy Working Lives award scheme.

The committee comprises a diverse and enthusiastic bunch of seven volunteers from different teams who inspire colleagues to participate in the activities through enthusiastic championing of health and wellbeing topics. The team works hard to devise ingenious solutions to promote the benefits of healthy lifestyle choices in an inclusive manner, often introducing a fun element of competition. More sensitive topics are broached in a thoughtful and informative way.

The committee encourages colleagues to share topics of special interest to them, for example supporting Dementia Friends and Coeliac Awareness sessions, and maintains a close link with the local Carer’s Network. The team exemplifies the Civil Service commitment to Health and Wellbeing and inspires a positive and inclusive working environment.
