The obesity epidemic is a contemporary challenge for developed countries. To address increasing overweight and obesity rates, the Australian Government has developed initiatives such as the National Obesity Taskforce and the Healthy Living Ministerial Taskforce. To date, the focus has largely been on obesity as a health issue and little has been done in response to obesity as a workplace concern. However, larger workers have implications for workplace health and safety and the workers’ compensation system. Increasing overweight and obesity rates suggest, for example, that more workers will carry excess weight, are likely to be unfit, and be physically impaired.
The prevalence of overweight and obesity is increasing at a rapid rate worldwide. The World Health Organisation (WHO 2008) estimates that more than one billion people are overweight, and at least 300 million of them are obese. Australia is among the most overweight and obese of the developed nations.
Overweight and obesity represents a major concern as excess body weight and lack of physical activity is associated with many serious chronic health conditions. It has been suggested that life expectancy may fall for the first time in living memory as a consequence of increasing obesity rates, especially in children who may die before their parents due to health complications arising from being obese.
