This study was conducted to determine the status of the implementation of health promotion programmes (HPPs) in Japanese small-scale enterprises (SSEs).
A survey was conducted in 1996 using a questionnaire mailed to all the member construction companies (n=772) of a health insurance society, and a response rate of 84% was obtained.
Health examination was most frequently conducted (90%), followed by exercise/fitness programmes (17%), smoking measures (12%), health guidance (11%) and nutrition education (6%). Mental health programmes and the government-advocated Total Health Promotion Plan (THP) were implemented at less than 2% of SSEs.
The implementation rates for these programmes, except for smoking measures and the THP, were higher at large enterprises than at SSEs.
The employment rate for occupational physicians (OPs) was 9% and 49% at SSEs and large enterprises, respectively.
The activity most frequently conducted by OPs was health examination, followed by curative services and health education.
Advising employees to undergo re-examination or more valid examination after the annual health examination was most frequently conducted by non-health professionals.
