The ILO's SOLVE programme is based on the recognition of the interdependent relationships between psychosocial factors and other health-related behaviours and their underlying causes in the workplace (work organization, working conditions, labour relations). The programme promotes the design of enterprise level policies and intervention programmes to improve working conditions and reduce work-related stress by incorporating psychosocial hazards and health promotion issues into the risk assessment and risk management strategy, involving both employers and workers through bipartite OSH committees at the workplace level.

Format and Methodology

Format and Methodology

This course will begin with a distance part using an Internet-based learning platform that will be activated eight weeks before the course (from May 2 to July 1, 2018). During this period, participants should follow a 30-hour self-administered course on the platform and perform a test at the end of the course. The platform will also present a documentation center that will contain useful information for the participants on the theme of the course. This distance learning part is a preparatory part to ensure that all participants have a level of knowledge of the subject that allows them a greater benefit of the face-to-face part of the course (to be held in Turin, Italy from 2 to 13 July 2018). A highly participatory and action-oriented approach will be used during the course, giving much emphasis on the exchange of experiences in looking for innovative and practical solutions to problems and challenges. The methodology will be centred on the participants and the learning process, with the support of facilitators. The training methodology will use active methods for learning, making use of the knowledge and the experience of participants, promoting a permanent communication among participants, through group work, and discussions, that will facilitate their own total integration and participation in the course activities.

Course participants are encouraged to prepare for the course by investigating the latest trends in the relationship between the psychosocial and health problems in their workplaces.

Participants will also be presented with pertinent documentation as a follow-up to the presentations in order to expand the knowledge about the specified topics.

A permanent monitoring of the learning process will be conducted throughout the training by the course coordinator. At the end of the course, an individual end-of-course evaluation questionnaire will be used to allow participants to express their view about the training.
