Being Well Together Programme at the heart of MIDA’s staff wellbeing ethos
MIDA Civil Engineering LTD’s Senior Management Team have recently collaborated with the British Safety Council to rollout the organisation’s ‘Being Well Together’ programme as part of MIDA’s focus on staff wellbeing.
Collaborating to develop MIDA’s health, safety and wellbeing strategy
Being Well Together is a 1 or 3-year programme, where organisations are guided to create, implement and maintain a health, safety and wellbeing strategy.
The programme gives staff access to the British Safety Council’s online Resource Hub – in addition to being able to liaise with a Support Manager.
MIDA strives to protect and improve both the physical and mental wellness of all its stakeholders, and recognises that almost all aspects of wellbeing can impact – directly or indirectly – the safety of its team. That is why Health, Safety & Wellbeing is a core value and one that is fundamentally important; both inside and outside of work.
MIDA will soon be undertaking an organisation-level assessment and publishing an employee survey to collate feedback to aid continuous improvement in the health, safety and wellbeing support it offers.
Improving MIDA’s occupational health and wellbeing provision
The company has recently invested in additional occupational health and wellbeing services for its staff, including:
- Health and wellbeing talks for all staff – on topics such as diet, stress, exercise, fatigue, etc.
- Wellbeing checks – ‘mini-medicals’ for all staff.
- Safety critical medicals for Plant Operators.
- Health surveillance for all personnel/roles who require it.
These services will be provided in partnership with Prism OH, who are specialists in occupational health within the construction sector.
Embedding MIDA’s mental health and wellness support network
As part of the Being Well Together programme, MIDA have also become a supporter of the Mates in Mind charity, whose goal is to improve the mental health and wellbeing of workplaces across the UK.
Mates in Mind achieve this by providing the skills, clarity and confidence to employers on how to raise awareness, improve understanding and address the stigma of mental ill-health within the workplace.
MIDA’s core values align with Mates in Mind’s belief that there is no health, without mental health.
James Brown, HSEQT Director at MIDA Civils said:
We’re really excited to embark on our journey with the British Safety Council to rollout the organisation’s ‘Being Well Together’ programme and implement our health, safety and wellbeing strategy across the next 3 – 5 years.
We’re committed to engineering a new standard of excellence.
