Toolbox for workplace health promotion

The EUROPEAN NETWORK FOR WORKPLACE HEALTH PROMOTION provides a toolbox
containing effective workplace health promotion (WHP) methods and instruments
which are being used in practical context in all European countries. The
collection therefore creates a true European 'exchange pool' for WHP
practitioners and decision makers in the fields of human resource management,
occupational health & safety and public health.

The inventory consists of programmes, projects (Models of Good Practice) or
instruments (such as questionnaires, guidelines and information materials),
suitable for improving or promoting health at the workplace, particularly for
giving solutions tackling health related problems at the workplace such as:


  • ageing workforce,
  • disability management,
  • alcohol abuse,
  • smoking,
  • unhealthy eating habits,
  • mental health and
  • stress.

At organisational level a tool can be participatory, process-oriented,
integrated in company management and the daily routines and structures of the
organisation, induce organisation change, etc.

All tools in this toolbox are


  • used on a company level;
  • used more than once (multi-use);
  • transferable to different working situations and companies and
  • accessible to various user groups.
