Abstract This report of a WHO expert committee examines ways in which the workplace can be used as a setting for health promotion activities that go beyond the traditional concern with work-related hazards. It concentrates on programmes and activities developed for workers that have demonstrated their ability to alter life-styles, improve health, increase productivity, and reduce absenteeism and accidents at work.
