Abstract: The promotion of health and working ability at the workplace are new tasks for the occupational health services and priority objectives of the WHO global strategy on occupational health for all, requiring concerted action by employers, employees, government agencies, relevant preventive services and experts. The Bilthoven Division of the WHO European Centre for Environment and Health, in collaboration with the Social Insurance Institution of Finland, the Finnish Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions and the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, invited experts and representatives from national, intergovernmental and international institutions and organizations to review and redefine the role of the occupational health services in health promotion. The participants recommended that every Member State should ensure workplace health promotion activities, whenever possible with assistance from the occupational health services. As part of their occupational health policy, countries should develop national policies and programmes on the promotion of workplace health and working ability, and in so doing they should make full use of existing international guidance, expertise and experience
