The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) launched a two year Europe-wide campaign: ‘Healthy Workplaces Manage Stress’.
The prevalence of work-related stress in Europe is startling. EU-OSHA’s latest pan-European opinion poll revealed that 51 % of workers find work-related stress to be common in their workplace and 4 in 10 workers think that stress is not handled well in their organisation. However, together employers and workers can successfully manage and prevent work-related stress and psychosocial risks; the Healthy Workplaces Campaign aims to help companies do just that.
The Federation of European Ergonomics Societies encourages all federated societies to pay carefully attention to this campaign, and promote the importance of the contribution of ergonomics professionals in the reduction of the harm effect of work related stress.
As an official campaign partner, the Federation of European Ergonomics Societies dedicates its 2014 year Month of Ergonomics campaign to the prevention of work related stress.
