On 7 April, European Agency for Safety at Health at Work (EU-OSHA) launched the ‘Healthy Workplaces Manage Stress’ campaign with the objective of raising awareness about the psychological, physical and social risks linked to stress at work. The initiative, supported by the EU institutions and the European social partners, will build partnerships with employer and trade union organisations committed to promoting practices to manage work-related stress and psychosocial risks across Europe. All organisations are invited to join this action as official campaign partners.
The campaign aims to help employers’ and workers’ representatives, managers and workers to identify and manage stress and psychological, physical and social risks in the workplace. It also promotes the use of simple tools which can help organisations to effectively manage such risks. Reducing stress at work and creating a healthy work environment is beneficial to both employees and employers, for it increases workers’ wellbeing and feeling of being valued, and helps reduce absenteeism and improve business productivity.
