Human Adaptation in the Workplace
The concept of individual health, defined as the overall condition of an individual or a condition of well-
being, has been broadly expanded in the past two decades from that of an individual to that of a group of
individuals and general systems. The rising costs of healthcare particularly in the workplace have
prompted a recent move towards the concept of “healthy workforce” as advocated by the National Insti-
tute for Occupational Safety and Health.
