stress picture

The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) has launched its 2014 campaign, which is a two year Europe-wide campaign on ‘Healthy Workplaces Manage Stress’.  The campaign is designed for employers and workers to tackle work-related stress together.

According to its latest poll, the EU-OSHA revealed that 51% of workers find work-related stress to be common in their workplace, while four in ten workers think that stress is not handled well in their organisation. And as stress is the second most frequently reported work-related health problem, its management and prevention is the focus of this year’s campaign.

The Healthy Workplaces Campaign states that together employers and workers can successfully manage and prevent work-related stress and psychosocial risk though and aims to help companies do that.

At the campaign launch, the EU-OSHA called on Europe’s enterprises to recognise the need to tackle work-related stress. By doing so, they will be protecting their workers’ health and their organisations’ productivity, according to the campaign.
