Concerns over the well-being of healthcare workers grew extensively over the past few years, especially with the onslaught of COVID-19. Organised by the WSH Council, the WSH Forum for Healthcare 2023 will gather industry stakeholders to pledge for Vision Zero, based on the theme “Caring for the Well-being, Safety and Health of our Healthcare Workers”. 

The forum will consist of two panel discussions covering mental well-being and workplace harassment, which are both key concerns for the healthcare industry.

Several healthcare institutions will be recognised at the event for their efforts in looking after the mental well-being of their staff, where they came forward to share their CARE programmes via the CARE Challenge.  The CARE Challenge was an initiative of the WSH Council (Healthcare) Committee. It was introduced to recognise the various efforts that healthcare institutions have put in place to take care of the mental well-being of their staff.
