European Agency for Safety and Health at Work
Making Europe a safer, healthier and more productive place to work
EU-OSHA has launched the 12th edition of the European Good Practice Awards in occupational safety and health. The awards welcome applications from European companies or organisations who are implementing measures to successfully manage stress and psychosocial risks in their workplaces.
EU-OSHA launches a two year Europe-wide campaign: ‘Healthy Workplaces Manage Stress’.
Speaking at the campaign launch in Brussels, László Andor, EU Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion and Greek Deputy Minister for Labour, Social Security and Welfare, Vasilis Kegkeroglou, representing the Greek EU Council Presidency, 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.
Christa Sedlatschek, EU-OSHA Director explained that together employers, workers and their representatives can successfully manage and prevent work-related stress and psychosocial risks; and that the Healthy Workplaces Campaign aims to help organisations do just that.
Speaking at the inauguration of the brand new premises in the Miribilla area of Bilbao, the European Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, László Andor announced that the European Commission would shortly publish its much-awaited EU Strategic Framework on Health and Safety at Work.
In the second historic development of the day, the Spanish Deputy Secretary for Employment and Social Security, Pedro Llorente and EU-OSHA Director Dr Christa Sedlatschek signed a Seat Agreement between the Kingdom of Spain and the European Union.
The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) is conducting a survey to obtain feedback on its activities and the results achieved. Please help us to do this by completing this short questionnaire, which will take you no more than 15 minutes. The survey is being carried out for EU-OSHA by the UK research institute, the Institute for Employment Studies (IES).
The survey can be completed in all official EU languages as well as Icelandic and Norwegian. Please tell us what you think about our campaigns, publications, website and information dissemination.
Psychosocial risks can occur in every workplace, and the quality of any workplace is significantly associated with the level of stress experienced by workers.
