Abstract: Examines ways in which the workplace can be used as a setting for health promotion activities that go beyond the traditional concern with work-related hazards. Prepared by a group of eleven international experts, the report concentrates on programmes and activities, developed for workers, that have demonstrated their ability to alter life-styles, improve health, increase productivity, and reduce absenteeism and accidents on the job. The most extensive section uses studies and experiences, mainly drawn from industrialized countries, to illustrate favourable results achieved through specific types of programmes. These include measures to reduce smoking, promote physical activity, improve nutrition and weight control, and combat alcohol and drug abuse. Programmes concerned with reducing adverse psychosocial factors and correcting ergonomic problems are also considered
