Working on Wellness (WoW) Resources
Welcome to the Working on Wellness (WoW) Resources Page.
Working on Wellness resources target workplace wellness to men in industrial and resource sectors. WOW resources support workplace champions with policy suggestions, messaging and activities that encourage healthy living at the worksite.
The health outcomes for men are below average – especially in the North. Working on Wellness (WoW) was designed for men in working environments that are fast-paced and hands-on. The materials get men thinking about their health as another tool in their belt.
Do you want to get started right away? First, read “Getting Started with WoW” to guide you in rolling out these resources at your worksite. Then check out the WoW modules. You will find simple, easy tips to get workers to Take Care of their Equipment – like their hearts, lungs and arteries!
WoW has been adapted and tested in 13 worksites in oil and gas, construction and forestry sectors in BC, and the mining sector in the Northwest Territories. We look forward to sharing the lessons that were learned – the evaluation and detailed case studies are coming soon.
