The overall aim of the project is to create an e−learning course (ELWHP) intended for health−, OSH−, and adult educational specialists in collaboration with European partners in order to promote workplace health promotion theory and practice.
The scope will be achieved through a process of transferring the expertise available at institutions (Universities, Institutes of occupational health etc) from 7 countries (Spain, Finland, Italy, Greece, Ireland, Belgium and Poland) involved in WHP training at their national level. Each one of the institutions will bring its own experience in particular topics (such as Ergonomics, Risk Assessment, Safety, Health Promotion, Research, Workability etc) which will further on become modules of the Workplace Health Promotion Course proposed.
The operational objectives of the project are the following:
• To organize an updated & specifically crafted Workplace Health Promotion Training Course for the Occupational Health & Public Health experts
• To support the process of developing the Workplace Health Promotion domain through an information campaign developed at national level among the institutions involved in delivering training courses for health professionals
• To disseminate the content of the Training Course at European level for possible duplication according to various needs
