Abstract:
This book is the result of an European funded project on planning, implementing, and evaluating health promotion activities in the workplace, in order to address occupational risks and hazards that are specific to women, or that women are more likely to encounter. In 1999, women were 1.5 times as likely as men to suffer work-related health problems other than an accident in the EU. The book begins with methodology on health promotion in the workplace, followed by chapters on several health topics particularly important to women such as nutrition, physical exercise, musculoskeletal disorders, smoking, reproductive health, breast feeding, female cancers and genetic screening, mental health, alcohol abuse, sexual harassment, and, occupational and communicable diseases.The approach taken by the authors bears in mind that women have a dual role in society, especially in health matters, as they greatly influence the health habits of their family - thus awareness-raising and prevention activities specifically targeting women are a fundamental factor in health promotion for the whole population.
