New research proposals by ENWHP
The Research Division has been very active since the beginning of the year, becoming involved on 4 proposals to the European Commission programmes. Two of these have been submitted to the H2020 call for better health and care, economic growth and sustainable health systems and are concerned with developing and testing tools to address mental health issues in the workplace. These proposals are led by organisations from Spain and from Italy and the ENWHP is a partner in both proposals.
The other 2 proposals have been submitted to the Erasmus Plus programme, which is the Commission’s main programme for developing vocational training programmes. The first is concerned with developing training in WHP to a high level, something which is lacking in most EU countries, while the second is looking to develop training in the area of promoting physical exercise in the workplace. You can find out more about these 2 proposals in the Training Division part of the website.
Evaluation of proposals such as these generally takes 3 months or so – we expect to hear the outcomes of this process in the early summer.
3 recent Publications on Occupational Health
During the conference celebrating the World Day for Safety and Health at Work 2019 the ENWHP Spanish Contact Office has presented three interesting publications (in Spanish) on Cancer and Occupations (available soon), A procedure for occupational diseases case analysis and a Practical encyclopedia on Occupational Health. All these publications are available for free.
All organisations or persons, being personally or professionally interested or involved in the field of health at work, can become a member of ENWHP.
Since 1996 ENWHP has addressed the objectives of the Ottawa Charter and has been at the leading edge of the developments in European workplace health promotion. By means of various joint initiatives, it developed good practice criteria and established infrastructures for WHP in the Member States. Through these national forums, ENWHP facilitates the cross - border exchange of information and the dissemination of good workplace health practice in Europe.
