Also include Evaluating Workplace health promotion interventions:
Workplace Health Promotion (WHP) is defined as ‘the combined efforts of employers, employees and society to improve the health and wellbeing of people at work. This is achieved through a combination of: improving the work organisation and working environment: promoting the participation of workers in the whole process of WHP; enabling health choices, and encouraging personal development’ (European Agency for Safety and Health at Work, 2005).
There are number of workplace health models including the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention Model (CDC, 2013), which has 4 steps:
Assessment – to define employee health risks and concerns and describe current health promotion activities, capacity and needs
Planning – to develop the components of a workplace health programme including determining goals, prioritising interventions and building the organisational infrastructure
Implementation – putting strategies and interventions in place and making them available to employees
Evaluation – investigating the worth and quality of the programme
The World Health Organisation (2010) healthy workplace model breaks these steps into eight processes, which include: mobilize; assemble; assess; prioritise; plan; do; evaluate; and improve. WHO (2010) highlight core principles of: ethics and values; leadership engagement, and worker involvement, with areas for action identified as:
The physical work environment
Personal health resources
Enterprise community involvement
Psychosocial work environment
