The aim of the European Network for Workplace Health Promotion is to encourage more European enterprises to invest in improved health at work.

The workplace is seen as an important location for successful health promotion strategies because employees today spend a growing amount of time at work and a better state of health can be created here through a healthy working environment, organization of work and the promotion of healthier lifestyles.  Large numbers of premature death and chronic diseases could be avoided through the promotion of healthier lifestyles.

A comprehensive approach is needed which will stimulate the development of healthy and participatory enterprise cultures and which involves both the physical and mental well-being of employees.

Three specific issues will be covered:

  • Working life on the move: Ergonomics, fitness and well-being
  • Work and stress: Spice of life or kiss of death?
  • Clearing the air at work: the enjoyment of a smoke-free workplace.

Plenary presentations will take place for each of the three topics and will be followed by more in-depth discussions and presentations of Models of Good Practice to be held by company representatives.
