Health promotion in the workplace is about more than a safe and healthy working environment. COWI provides consultancy services concerning organisations' opportunities to improve the health of the staff.

An increasing number of organisations give their employees a variety of offers to improve their physical and mental health. These measures acknowledge the fact that we spend an important part of our life at the workplace and that we are more productive, innovative and flexible if we are healthy in every respect.

Offers to individuals and to organisationsIn cooperation with other specialists, COWI offers to develop and implement a policy for health care in the organisation. Our services include:

  • Health examinations
  • Personal health profiles
  • Health promoting activities
  • Healthy nutrition
  • Smoking stop
  • Exercise and physical activity
  • Abuse consultancy
  • Prevention of stress and stress management
A supplement to OHS measures

 

We consider health promotion in the workplace as a supplement to the occupational health and safety (OHS) measures of organisations. Health examinations and health promoting activities are considered offers that each employee may choose to accept or not.

Sound business
An investment in the employees' health is sound business. Healthy employees with interesting tasks in good physical and organisational settings have greater job satisfaction, are more productive and have lower absenteeism than unhealthy employees with the wrong tasks in a physical or psychological harmful working environment.
