Health and Wellbeing

The SPS is committed to fostering a positive working environment that proactively promotes and protects the physical and mental wellbeing of its employees through appropriate wellbeing activities and resources.

SPS works with the Scottish Centre for Healthy Working Lives Award (HWLA) who run a series of award programmes, Gold, Silver and Bronze; a commendation for Mental Health can also be achieved by establishments who have attained the Gold Award.

The SPS has an overall Wellbeing policy, developed to support our employees to live healthy lives. Employees are encouraged to take personal responsibility for their own health, safety and wellbeing, whilst also ensuring that the safety of their colleagues and others in the workplace is safeguarded.


Major Disruption to Travel

The SPS recognises the requirement to continue services during adverse weather conditions, or other exceptional circumstances causing disruption to travel, whilst not requiring staff to place themselves at undue risk in attending work.

The attached documentation provides some guidance on how situations involving major disruption to travel should be handled.
