OBJETIVE: We describe a method for feasibility assessment of workplace health promotion (WHP) programs as a necessary prerequisite of any WHP program. METHODS: A total of 167 employees from five workplace communities participated in the study. A questionnaire on the basic components of feasibility (risk factors, attitudes to workplace health promotion interventions, and social-occupational context) was administered. RESULTS: Risk behaviours were common among the employees interviewed. Health promotion in the workplace was favorably viewed by 79% of subjects but reported participation would be lower. Interventions on diet and physical activity received the highest acceptance. Participation would be greatest among local administration employees. CONCLUSIONS: The method demonstrated its utility in obtaining useful data for designing workplace health promotion interventions.
