Slovenia: Promoting workplace safety and physical and mental health in an insurance company
Employees of the Slovenian insurance company Zavarovalnica Triglav, d.d. mostly perform desk-based work and risk developing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) through computer use. The company used a holistic approach to address mental and physical health through ergonomic measures, promotion of physical activity and awareness raising for work in the office and from home. The result was greater motivation and decreased sick leave among staff.
Zavarovalnica Triglav, d.d. is one of the winners of the 15th Healthy Workplaces Good Practice Awards competition recognising successful prevention and management of MSDs.
