The World Health Organization defines the workplace as a ‘priority setting for health promotion’:
According to the WHO ‘the workplace has a direct influence on the physical, mental and social wellbeing of workers and as such should be used as a platform for the promotion of Health of a large proportion of the population.
Despite the above, worker health is often neglected and basic occupational health and safety programmes are not yet widely implemented.
The workplace is also a vital arena for AIDS education and prevention.
