||Following an examination of the literature, safety and health promotion programmes are recognized as needed in workplaces in Italy. This is particularly so where the working population is relatively stable, because workers can be monitored over a long period of time. The most successful programmes are aimed at modifying high-risk life-style behaviour patterns (smoking, alcohol abuse, eating disorders, etc.) through information, active participation, screening, follow-up, changes in the working environment and physical exercise activities. These health promotion programmes are however extremely hard to develop for Italian workers, since most firms are small and much still remains to be done in order to eliminate occupational risk factors. The current flexibility of modern work patterns could constitute a further obstacle.
