Version 4.0 is faster to complete and has updated questions in line with current best practice for Wellbeing. Feedback is being taken about this version
The WASP covers a broader range of issues that employees may face with their wellbeing at work. The six sections of the form are follows.
It is constructed within excel allowing some information to be automatically copied throughout the form, and includes self-calculating risk ratings. The first part of the day ensures that the legislation surrounding issues such as duty of care, Reasonable Adjustments, Reasonably Practicable, etc, are all covered. In addition to this we will discuss specific cases to ensure common controls for different conditions are discussed. The first part of the day also considers the Equality Act IN DETAIL to ensure a full understanding of how to ensure compliance with the requirements. The second part of the day will take a REAL Occupational Health report plus interviews to produce a WASP to demonstrate how to enter information and outcomes into the format to ensure the individual is supported as fully as possible. The day will consist of individual work as well as small group and whole group work. It is recommended that delegates bring with them internet enabled devices as the trainers will often use interactive presentation software called Slido. This is free to download if delegates wish to do so before the session.
