3rd International Course on Workplace Health Management

Åre, Sweden

NIVA - Nordic Institute for Advanced Training in Occupational Health- will arrange a course in workplace health promotion in the Spring 2007 (18 - 20 April 2007 - in Köja Fjell Hotelin) in Åre, Sweden. This third course on Workplace Health Promotion (WHP) is carrying on the theme of the two previous NIVA courses in 2000 and 2003. Healthy workplace is a goal shared by many countries and international organisations including The European Union and The International Labour Organization. Healthy work consists of decent terms of work, safe working conditions, possibility to use and develop professional skills and to be a trusted member of a work organisation. Good physical and mental capacity is a prerequisite to work innovatively and effectively. Workplace health promotion contributes to the results and competitive advantage of the organisation. However, many indicators show that we still have a long way to go to reach the goal of 'healthy people in healthy workplaces'. The reasons are societal, organisational, managerial and individual and include multiple components of work life and life style factors.
