Welcome to the WHP-Training Website
ELWHP is a “healthy” project which aims to provide professionals involved in Health at Work, with a blended (face to face training & e-learning) Training Course on WHP. The project also focuses at building a consensus among the specialists’ community regarding the need to have workplace health promotion within the training syllabus of both specialties involved in dealing with Health at Work (Occupational Health & Public Health).
The partners of the ELWHP project endorse the content of the Luxembourg Declaration of the European Network of Workplace Health Promotion which is stating that:
“Workplace Health Promotion (WHP) is the combined efforts of employers, employees and society to improve the health and well-being of people at work. This can be achieved through a combination of:
- Improving the work organization and the working environment
- Promoting active participation
- Encouraging personal development”
The project is mainly targeted at occupational health practitioners and public health experts. It is also relevant for safety representatives, human resources managers and other workplace actors who may be involved in WHP activities.
The ELWHP website provides courses, bibliography, information, methods and training for OSH specialists (mainly occupational health practitioners and public health experts) and other professionals so as to enable them to develop workplace health promotion initiatives for companies they are working within.
