Work Skills and Health 2021/22

work skills and heath report cover

This year’s Director of Public Health’s Annual Report considers the relationship between work, skills, and health. It is the second in a series of three annual reports looking at the broad social and economic circumstances that together influence health, known as the social determinants of health, in East Sussex.  The relationship between work and health is complex. Good work can maintain health, and poor work can be detrimental to health. To maintain health, work needs to be paid adequately, be safe and stable, offer opportunity for development, prevent social isolation, and offer a degree of control or decision making. Amongst all of this, we need to have the skills to be able to access good quality work.

This report includes local data, details about how employers can support the health and wellbeing of their employees and recommendations to address health inequalities associated with employment.
