"A healthy working life is one that continuously provides working-age people with the opportunity, ability, support and encouragement to work in ways and in an environment which allows them to sustain and improve their health and wellbeing. It means that individuals are empowered and enabled to do as much as possible, for as long as possible, or as long as they want, in both their working and non-working lives."
Healthy Working Lives - a plan for action, Scottish Executive, 2004
"The Scottish Government's update of its Healthy Working Lives strategy confirms the country's position at the forefront of improving the health and wellbeing of working-age people in Britain."
Professor Dame Carol Black, National Director for Health and Work
