dc.description.abstract Workplace health promotion, concerned as it is with promoting the health of those in the workplace setting, has paid surprisingly little attention to the phenomenon of the workplace bullying, despite its prevalence and well-documented negative impact on health. Tacking workplace bullying provides an opportunity to work coherently within the settings approach, focusing not only on what health difficulties workers report, but how the organisation and work itself contributes to these difficulties and how the organisation (as opposed to the worker) can change to reduce ill health. Such an approach assumes that how work is constructed, how the organisation is structured, work-based relations, the explicit and implicit expectations of workers all are central to improving health. en_US
