Olympic Park health management – Raising the bar for health
The film Raising the bar for health captures the good practice of occupational health management on site of the Olympic Park and Olympic Village. The London Health, Work and Well-being programme developed the film with support from the Mayor of London, to highlight and inspire similar investment in health at work across the city and beyond. The film ties in with an independent evaluation of the occupational health programme funded by the Olympic Delivery Authority and the Health and Safety Executive. The film includes endorsement of the project by the Olympian Jonathan Edwards.
By summer 2012, over 40,000 people will have worked on the Olympic Park and Village. In that time, around 9,700 people have received safety critical medical checks with identified health conditions treated and supported to ensure continuation of employment on site. In addition over 2,000 people have been seen per month for health and well-being support.
