Wellness and Nutrition

Easternwell recognises the importance of maintaining good physical and mental health to reduce the risk of injury, fatigue and ill health of all employees and clients. To ensure we provide supportive environments to make the healthier choice easier, we have a dedicated Wellness Committee responsible for reviewing the organisational focus and programs required to implement our wellness program, Live Well.

The Easternwell’s Live Well program is a holistic approach to wellness, incorporating healthy eating, active and positive lifestyle choices, positive mental health and work life balance.

All Easternwell Camp Management managed mobile camps present a client specific menu that is reviewed by an accredited Practicing Dietician with experience delivering workplace wellbeing programs, food service projects and individual nutrition solutions.

Through the Live Well Program Easternwell provides a balance of healthy meal choices cooked fresh on-site by our qualified Chefs, evidenced based health information delivered through brochures, posters and toolbox talks and supportive remote camp facilities. These resources are available to anyone staying at an Easternwell camp.

In 2014, Workplace Health and Safety Queensland (WHSQ) partnered with Easternwell Camp Management and funded a project to create nutritional guidelines for Australian remote area camp food services as part of the QLD State Government Healthier. Happier. Workplaces (previously known as the Workplaces for Wellness Initiative). The guide takes into consideration the unique environment and occupations of workers in remote area camps.

The aim of Choose Well, Live Well is to make the healthy choice, the easy choice through:

  • Developing practical nutritional guidelines
  • Promoting healthy options at all meal times by:

         -  increasing availability of healthy options, and

         -  decreasing availability of less healthy options

  • Encouraging employers to adopt policy, environmental and educational strategies that encourage better nutritional choices
