ABSTRACT
Objetivo: Conhecer as tendências atuais na implantação de programas de Promoção da Saúde em locais de trabalho, de acordo com a literatura especializada, observando se esses programas seguem as recomendações da Organização Mundial da Saúde. Métodos: Revisão sistemática da literatura buscando estudos teóricos ou práticos relacionados a quaisquer aspectos da Promoção da Saúde em locais de trabalho, utilizando os seguintes descritores: promoção da saúde, local de trabalho, ambiente de trabalho, trabalho, tabagismo, abandono do uso de tabaco, alcoolismo, alimentação, atividade física, atividade motora, aconselhamento, perfil de saúde, testes diagnósticos de rotina, indicadores básicos de saúde, indicadores, medicina preventiva, modelo transteórico, triagem e absenteísmo. Foram identificados artigos em português, inglês e espanhol, entre os anos 2000 e 2009, nas bases de dados PUBMED, BIREME e SCIELO. Resultados: Os 95 artigos selecionados foram classificados de acordo com os temas estudados e com o foco de suas ações. Os resultados gerais dessas análises mostram a importância do bom planejamento, da avaliação de resultados para correção de eventuais falhas de execução e da mescla de intervenções individuais e organizacionais para otimização dos resultados. Conclusões: Publicações científicas que tratam de ações de Promoção da Saúde no local de trabalho podem ser encontradas em bom número e contemplam os principais aspectos teóricos e práticos relacionados à sua implantação. Apesar disso, são poucos os estudos desenvolvidos por equipes de Saúde Ocupacional ou gestores de saúde das empresas, havendo grande predominância daqueles realizados por profissionais ligados à área acadêmica.
