Workplace Health Promotion -
Objectives of the ISSA Guidelines on Workplace Health Promotion

The information contained in these guidelines will provide social security institutions with a framework for action. In essence, they are a “how to” manual for developing and implementing sustainable, needs-based workplace health promotion (WHP) programmes in client organizations, be they private or public sector enterprises, agencies or organizations. The processes and procedures described are based on established good practice.

Guidance focuses on two key areas:

  • Social security institutions as facilitators of good practice in their client organizations and the steps involved in carrying out that role;
  • Social security institutions as models and the actions needed to achieve this status.

The ISSA Guidelines on Workplace Health Promotion should be used in conjunction with the ISSA Guidelines on Return to Work and Reintegration and the ISSA Guidelines on Prevention of Occupational Risks and be understood as a holistic tool for senior management in social security institutions.
