A Healthier Workforce for a Healthier UK eventBook Now
Start Date:05/12/2019 09:00
End Date:05/12/2019 17:00
Event Code:ABC0691
Description:When: Thursday 5th of December 2019.
Where: Loughborough University 

In the UK, limited research, health campaigns and initiatives have been conducted in the logistics sector. As a result, employees from the transport sector seem to be at greater risk of health inequalities such as shorter life expectancy and disability free working life. To address this issue, a team of researchers and stakeholders is organising a whole day event  A Healthier Workforce for a Healthier UK.
The purpose of the day is to answer the following question: How can we transform jobs that are not conducive of health into a healthier working environment? To do this effectively, an integrative approach where industry stakeholders, commissioners and health care providers, union representatives, health researchers and employees work together is necessary to redesign the workplace in order to promote health. This is particularly important for those employees whose work patterns or conditions prevent them from accessing medical care and are marginalised, isolated, sleep deprived and within the low-socioeconomic status (e.g. lorry drivers, warehouse workers, cleaners, etc).

The Healthier Workforce for a Healthier UK event has been designed to be an interactive day, as two of the main aims are to set up the Health and Wellbeing for all – impact working group and to write a white paper where we outline what initiatives need to be developed to help prevent or manage disease risk in order to reduce sickness leave and improve quality of working life. 

This event is only open to those working in the sector as places are limited.

The day is free of charge and lunch and refreshments will be provided.  If you would like to apply for a place please email Dr Veronica Varela-Mato   with details of your name, organisation, job role and how you feel you can contribute to the discussion before Friday 23rd November.

An inaugural lecture by Professor Ed Sweeney
Professor of Logistics and Systems, Director of the Aston Logistics & Systems Institute, School of Engineering and Applied Science

Products and services reach the final user through complex global networks of companies and processes. Economic and societal well-being in the 21st Century is critically dependent on the logistics systems that underpin these supply chains.

This lecture introduces the fascinating - but often invisible - world of logistics using a variety of cultural references to illustrate the key elements.

It also explores how the effective application of engineering principles and concepts – particularly design and systems thinking – can help to address some of mega challenges facing logisticians and other supply chain professionals.
