Corporate Health Standard

Peter Rimmer is an Assessor for the Welsh Government's Corporate Health Standard.

Appointed in 2003, Peter assesses businesses and organisations mainly in North Wales as an Assessor and Chair of the Assessment Panel.

The Corporate Health Standard is a continuous journey of good practice and improvement, and it can be used as a tool to support the development of policies that promote the health and wellbeing of employees. 

Taking an organisational development approach, which is the most effective way of promoting sustainable health improvement, the Corporate Health Standard promotes good practice and supports businesses and organisations in taking active steps to promote the health and wellbeing of their employees.

The Standard is awarded at different levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. It begins at the Bronze level, recognising activities and policies in place that comply with legislation and address the key workplace risks to employee health. The Standard builds to the Platinum level, which is reserved for exemplar employers demonstrating business excellence and taking full account of their corporate social responsibility.

The Small Workplace Health Award is the national mark of quality for health and wellbeing aimed at organisations employing fewer than 50 people.

It is a developmental process, based on good practice and improvement and it can be used to support the creation of activities that promote the health and wellbeing of employees. The award has been developed to target the key preventable ill-health issues in the workplace, which will also help to increase organisational performance and productivity.

The three levels of the award - Bronze, Silver and Gold - reflect the range of actions that an organisation is taking to promote the health and wellbeing of its staff. The modules that make up each level are standalone and it is recommended that the award is seen as developmental to be achieved over time.
