Physical Activity Certificate

The Physical Activity Certificate is an opportunity for employers to demonstrate their commitment to the health and well-being of their workforce. The certificate recognises companies, within Cornwall, that demonstrate a positive approach towards the physical activity levels of its employees.

There is significant investment from workplaces in the promotion of physical activity and the health and wellbeing of their employees. Many workplaces have recognised that having a healthy workforce can reduce sickness absence, lower staff turnover and boost productivity - this is good for employers, workers and the wider economy.

The Physical Activity Certificate provides employers with an easy and clear guide on how to make workplaces a supportive and physically active environment in which employees can flourish. Through supporting the ‘Healthy Workplace' Award Scheme, the certificate also provides the bronze level criteria for the scheme as well as its own accreditation.
