Abstract [en]

Because people in working life spend most of their waking hours at the workplace it seems like a good arena for health promotion interventions. Several interventions can make healthier employees and consequently more effective companies. Health promoting actions are, therefore, of interest for both employees and employer. It is above all individuals’ eating, exercise, and smoking habits that affect health. The employer intervention should at first hand focus on exercise activities, because they give the best health improvement and in other hand the tobacco habits. In order to identify employees’ perceptions of state of health and health work on a workplace, Nordic Construction Company (NCC), with a particular major health problem 10 wood- and concrete workers were interviewed. The results show that health status as well as health management at the workplace were perceived as mediocre. NCC needs, in particular, to create better awareness about the health management and the participation of employees in the health activities.
