Promoting health at workplaces fosters employees’ work ability, their recovery from work, and their everyday work activity. Our aim is that means to promote health are executed on every finnish workplace every single day. Off we go - Health at workplaces -guidelines are based on scientific reviews and expert knowledge.

Health promotion methods are different in different workplaces, because the demands of the work and their effects on health vary. Taking care of oneself is part of one’s professional skills. In these guidelines we mean by health the entity of physical, psychological, cognitive and social wellbeing.
