Work is changing.Traditional approaches to prevention fall short.A broader understanding of prevention and the cultural transformation associated with it mean that there are new demands on companies and their employees.People and organisations need competences for this transformation; they must be empowered to create humane living and working conditions.In order for people and organisations to be able to develop competences for the transformation,appropriate structural conditions in educational institutions and workplaces must be created.These conditions should enable people to experience a feeling of competence,to feel part of something and to perceive their actions as autonomous.
