social and ergonomic well-being of the European Union. It is also one of the
foundations of the European Network for Workplace Health Promotion, in which all
15 Member States and a string of other European countries are represented.
This book is aimed at everyone interested in the development of workplace
health promotion – superiors and subordinates, trade union representatives, the
personnel of Occupational Health Services, persons in charge of work environment
issues, and students. It is envisaged as a working tool, which covers both
topical research in the arena and a series of examples.

attention is paid to how processes of change are managed in an environment
characterised by an ever increasing rate of charge.
Experiences from the European Network for Workplace Health Promotion are
reported. The emphasis in the presentation lies on Swedish experiences, in
particular on the examples that have been highlighted in the Network´s project
“Models of Good Practice”. Follow-ups of these examples are presented alongside
two training programs in health promotion of work for managers and
The book concludes with some ethical reflections by the authors with regard
to efforts made in the field of the work environment. Experiences of Swedish
activities are summarised, and some trends in Europe and young people´s views on
their working life are discussed
