The Agency is producing a series of fact sheets to help tackle workrelated stress (WRS) and some of its key triggers. This fact sheet gives information and suggestions for those seeking to take practical action to tackle violence at work. Violence at work is a significant cause of WRS. The further information section at the end of the fact sheet gives details on Agency sources of assistance, including other fact sheets. Prevention of violence at work is one of the objectives in the Communication from the European Commission on the new strategy on health and safety at work.
