Health at work

A holistic approach

Occupational health is based on an interdisciplinary approach involving employees, employers and health personnel.  It aims to create a supportive workplace and to develop tools that can maintain, improve and promote the physical and mental well-being of people at work. By combining ergonomic, psychosocial, environmental and organisational aspects, the whole person is considered.

Through the results of applied research, it is possible to prevent occupational diseases and to foster an institutional culture of occupational health and safety.


The projects are presented according to the language of the study.
