HSWPG guidance


The Health, Safety and Wellbeing Partnership Group (HSWPG) has produced and commissioned a range of useful guidance and information on topics such as, lone workers, managing musculoskeletal disorders and back pain, sickness absence and stress.

We have also collated other useful guidance and information to support the group's aim to help NHS organisations combat bullying in healthcare and create cultures that improve the health, safety and wellbeing of all staff in the NHS.
