     Title: FITWORK Project launches Guide to implementing workplace fitness programmes

The Fitwork project, of which WRC is a partner (through the European Network for Workplace Health Promotion - ENWHP) has just launched a Guide to implementing workplace fitness programmes at a conference in Barcelona.  The Guide focuses on two types of programme – general programmes that aim to boost activity levels of employees and programmes that address specific musculoskeletal issues that arise from workplace risks (e.g. repetitive physical work, long periods of sitting).

The Guide is based on a number of activities undertaken within the project.  Partners from Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Poland, Italy, Romania as well as the ENWHP undertook a literature review, a transnational survey of employers, field trials of fitness programmes as well as drawing upon ENWHP expertise in setting up workplace health promotion programmes.  The Guide, drafted by Dr. Richard Wynne of WRC, is available from the project website
