More than one in four workers are affected by work-related stress (WRS) in the European Union. WRS and psychosocial issues are the focus for the European Week for Safety and Health at Work 2002. To support this initiative, a report has been produced covering a number of cases of programmes, practices and experiences from across the Member States that seek to tackle psychosocial issues and prevent WRS. This fact sheet summarises the report and is aimed at those with an interest in developing strategies to tackle WRS at a national, regional or local level. At the end of the fact sheet, there is information on how to obtain the report and other WRS products.
