Health Promotion Workshop

The workshop includes the unique educational health quiz game "Salubria The Health Game" proven to influence lifestyle behaviour positively



Need to promote health in the workplace?

Research shows that a healthier workforce is a happier and generally more productive workforce with less illness, less accidents, and reduced absenteeism (IBEC 2012).

With demands of the workplace growing ever greater due to advancements in technology and the nature of work in general becoming more sedentary, the need to help staff be as healthy as possible is more important than ever before. This starts with raising levels of health awareness and providing tools to help colleagues defend their health. The Salubria Health Workshop has 2 special tools to help.

Our 2 Special Tools are...

Tool 1: Health Quiz Game – Salubria The Health Game® is a hard copy, team-based quiz at the heart of the workshop.

. Playing the game helps participants to appreciate the important links between making healthy lifestyle choices and preventing lifestyle diseases.

. Research proves that learning through play reinforces the learning – so people learn and retain more this way.

.. The quiz presents powerful health messages, and all questions have been validated by health professionals.

Exposure to this game has proven to influence lifestyle behaviour positively.

Tool 2: The simple ‘7 Minute Workout’ - approved by The American College of Sports Medicine. A qualified fitness instructor will demonstrate this hi-intensity workout, and participation is greatly encouraged!

Benefits for the Participants….

.. Participants will learn how to prevent lifestyle diseases - like heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, vascular dementia, diabetes, obesity and some common cancers.

.. Participants will learn how to boost energy, improve fitness, increase bone strength, experience greater flexibility and agility and be less prone to accidents, helping to reduce sick days and absenteeism.


Benefits for the Organization….

.. A copy of the Salubria The Health Game is left with the organization - to allow the learning to continue, and to enhance the organization’s health culture. Some organizations are using the game for interdepartmental quizzes.

.. A framed certificate of participation in the Salubria Health Workshop will emphasise the commitment of the organization to health and wellbeing. When attracting new talent, a good corporate ethos for wellbeing is becoming a critical decision factor for new employees.

The game is currently being used to encourage behaviour change by; employers, teachers, fitness and health professionals.

See what Professor Donal O’ Shea says…


"The critical importance of a healthy lifestyle and the very real consequences of not managing our weight are conveyed in an engaging and fun way in Salubria The Health Game. What I really like about the game are the helpful suggestions offered in the 'Info Points' in each question. Allied to that, the fact that the questions are thoroughly researched, professionally validated, and list their individual sources, makes Salubria The Health Game a very credible educational resource."

Professor O’ Shea is the Health Service Executive Clinical lead for obesity for the Department of Health, Ireland. He also runs Weight Management Units for both St. Vincent’s Hospital, Dublin, and for St. Colmcille’s Hospital, Dublin.
