Título "Healthier Work at Brabantia", a comprehensive approach to wellness at the worksite
Información bibliográfica Nov. 1992, Vol.15, Nos.4-6, Special issue, p.351-366. 20 ref.
Resumen As American worksite health promotion projects claim to have not only favourable effects on well-being, safety and health, but also on absenteeism and productivity of employees, many European countries and enterprises have become interested in starting similar projects. However, most American programmes focus on the modification of individual behaviour rather than on the creation of health-promoting work environments and it is therefore argued that American programmes may be inefficient and socially unacceptable from a European perspective. This paper describes in detail the implementation of a Dutch project "Healthier Work at Brabantia" which, in contrast to the American approach, aims at promoting well-being, health and safety by means of changes at the individual as well as at the organisational and environmental level. The results will show the effects of interventions at the organisational and environmental level, including effects on work-related stress, absenteeism, accidents, and disability.
