This book focuses on the major issues surrounding worksite health promotion programs. It identifies and discusses examples of the most intensively studied programs (such as Johnson and Johnson's "Live for Life," and AT&T's "TLC"), and considers the "state of science" for the four most frequently offered health-promotion program components: smoking cessation, weight control, exercise, and stress management. As is becoming increasingly evident, worksite health-promotion activities pose their own unique set of challenges -- challenges that are likely to have a significant impact on national health status and costs. Crucial areas addressed in this volume include program development and design, cost benefit/cost effectiveness, and legislative/policy issues.

Fundamentals of Health at Work is an engaging re-assessment of workplace health, with particular emphasis on the neglected issues of the social context of the working environment and the impact on individuals of their workplaces. In looking at the historical context of the subject and at the concepts of health and illness, a selective series of thoughts emerge linking history, organizational development and health improvement. This text is comprehensive and unique in its multi-disciplinary analysis. It explores workplace health from its theoretical foundations and draws together the themes of occupational medicine, health and safety, workplace health development and occupational health.

Every year 140 million working days are lost to sickness absence. Most end with a swift return to work, but over 300,000 people a year fall out of work onto health-related state benefits. This Review aims to stop as many people as possible from needlessly moving away from work because of ill health, and to find ways of improving the coherence, effectiveness and cost of the system for managing sickness absence. There are potential major gains for employers, who spend £9 billion a year sick pay and associated costs, and the state, which spends £13 billion annually on health-related benefits. Currently the majority of people seeking a medical certificate are signed off as completely unfit. Until this is addressed, employers cannot make adjustments to help those people whose illness is compatible with a return to work. The central recommendation is that the Government should establish an Independent Assessment Service (IAS) which would provide an in-depth assessment of an individual's physical and/or mental function. It would also provide advice about how an individual could be supported to return to work. The service would replace GP certification. Other recommendations include: tax relief for expenditure by employers on medical treatment/vocational rehabilitation; abolishing the Percentage Threshold compensation scheme and the record-keeping obligations under statutory sick pay; introduction of a job-brokering service for long-term sick employees; end the Employment and Support Allowance assessment phase so as to improve and speed up the benefits system; improved processes in Jobcentre Plus.

This book aims at exploring the link between corporate and organizational culture, public and private policies, leadership and managerial skills or attitudes, and the successful implementation of work-related healthcare in Europe. Therefore it brings together a wide range of empirical and theoretical contributions from occupational health, management, psychology, medicine, economics, and (organizational) sociology to address the question of how to sustainably promote occupational health. Such important questions are explored as: What aspects of a corporate culture can be associated with health issues? How does leadership style affect the health of employees? How are health-related decisions in the workplace affected by the political environment? To what extent are interventions influenced by corporate culture, leadership and public policy? How can we make such interventions sustainable?

The relationship between health and work is widely recognized as complex and multifaceted. In the context of an aging population, our ability to enable individuals with health issues to continue working is becoming more critical. Addressing these current policy concerns, Work, Health and Wellbeing brings together new, original research from diverse disciplinary backgrounds to investigate how we can define and act on a biopsychosocial model of ill health to improve work participation in middle and later life.
