Wellbeing

Wellbeing has many aspects including mental, physical, social, financial, and work environment. These aspects are interdependent and influence each other. When one aspect of our wellbeing is out of balance, the others are affected.

We aim to create a culture that prioritises wellbeing, fosters resilience, and supports the emotional, physical and psychological needs of our workforce. Together, we strive to support a workforce where everyone thrives, both professionally and personally.

"Where's Your Head At?" Wellbeing Survey

Step Change in Safety is proud to work with IADC North Sea Chapter’s Mental Health Task Force and the Marine Safety Forum to identify how we can help improve the wellbeing of the energy industry’s workforce.

Wellbeing has many aspects including mental, physical, social, financial and environmental; they are interdependent and influence each other. When one aspect of our wellbeing is out of balance, the others are affected. 

We invite all workers in the UK energy industry to participate in our "Where’s your head at?" survey which aims to understand the current state of our workforce’s wellbeing. Findings will be used to direct future initiatives, create materials and resources, and support and enhance our workforce’s wellbeing, now and for future generations.

The survey runs 24 June to 26 August 2024 and can be accessed to the right.

It is entirely anonymous; there are no questions about people’s names and employers.

To help organisations launch the survey, a communications pack containing supporting materials (presentation, poster, 50 second film and QR code) is available to download below.
