Healthy Work in THE Ageing Europe


Mirjana Arandjelovic, Ivona Milic, Ljubodrag Radevic, Sonja Lekovic, Danijela Gavrilovic and Vesna Nikolic


Workplace health promotion (WHP) has been defined as the combined efforts of employers, employees and society to improve the health and well-being of people at work. This is achieved through a combination of: improving the work organisation and the working environment , promoting the active participation of employees in health activities, encouraging personal development. In our country, this subject is still  unpopular, and organized work on introduction and implementation of already existing directives of ENWHP still does not exist. As a result, the competitiveness of the European Union during the next few decades will depend on the contribution of older workers, especially in comparison with North America and Asia. The general aim, therefore, is to extend workability and health up to a higher age. The most important force for change is the workplace. There are different action plans and a host of tools with which the health, qualifications, motivation and therefore the work ability and employability of a company’s older workers both now and in the future can be fostered.
