Guidelines for the Prevention of Obesity at the Workplace (GPOW)

The GPOW Project was set up under the EU Public Health Program (2003-2008), with as lead partner - the Greek Institute of Preventive Medicine, Occupational and Environmental Health (PROLEPSIS). The goal of the project was to provide up-to-date information and tools for the prevention of obesity in the workplace. First, policies, good practices and interventions targeting obesity at the workplace were identified and assessed. Secondly, a set of guidelines for adopting counter obesity strategies were developed. Please check ou the website of PROLEPSIS for more information on GPOW. You can find a presentation on the project and two versions (short or extended) of the guidelines below.
