|Federation of European Ergonomic Societies (FEES) is one of the 87 official partners of the EU-OSHA 2014-2015 Healthy Workplaces campaign.|
Healthy Workplaces campaigns are coordinated in more than 30 countries and are recognised as the biggest occupational safety and health (OSH) campaigns in the world. Stress, the topic of the 2014–15 campaign, is the second most frequently reported work-related health problem in Europe and is believed to be the cause of more than half of all lost working days. The campaign partners are aware of the positive effects that tackling psychosocial risks can have on overall business performance, particularly long-term sustainability and social responsibility, and will lead by example and encourage other organisations to manage stress.
Throughout 2014 and 2015 EU-OSHA is campaigning to raise awareness of the importance of managing stress and psychosocial risks in the workplace. Although tackling psychosocial risks and work-related stress may seem challenging, this campaign aims to demonstrate that they can be dealt with in the same logical and systematic way as any other occupational safety and health issue. With this in mind, the Healthy Workplaces Campaign 2014-15 has the following key objectives:
- to raise awareness of the growing problem of work-related stress and psychosocial risks;
- to provide and promote the use of simple, practical tools and guidance for managing psychosocial risks and stress in the workplace;
- to highlight the positive effects of managing psychosocial risks and stress in the workplace, including the business case.
In the frame of the European Months of Ergonomics the Federation of European Ergonomic Societies (FEES) promotes the benefits of good workplace, work contents and work organisation designed with ergonomics approach.
