Abstract

We evaluated the impact of a health education program carried out for male employees, employed at small and medium-sized transportation office, on the knowledge and behavior modification of the subjects in terms of weight control and reduction in the incidence of metabolic syndrome.
There were effects to encourage the practice of their possible implementation items of efforts on the eating habits and lunch intake; however, it is difficult to bring about changes in the weight and metabolic syndrome related indicators through short-term health education programs. To spread health education to those with fewer opportunities, it is important for the senior management to recognize the need for health management of employees and the occupational health and safety personnel, and to consider the programs in small-sized workplaces with minimum burden on participants.
