Description

Description

SOLVE is an interactive educational programme for developing policy and actions to address health-promotion issues in the workplace. It focuses on prevention by integrating health promotion into occupational safety and health (OSH) policies and actions at the enterprise level. It covers the prevention of work-related stressors (workplace-related and economic), alcohol and drug abuse, violence (physical and psychological) and HIV/AIDS, as well as promoting tobacco-free workplaces and healthy lifestyles, including good eating, sleeping and exercise habits. The programme will assist in the design of policies and interventions to improve working conditions and reduce work-related stress from an OSH perspective by incorporating psycho-social hazards into the risk-assessment and management strategy, involving both employers and workers through bipartite OSH committees at enterprise level.

Format and Methodology

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.
