European Week for Health and Safety 2015 focuses on stress

Today begins the first day of The 2015 European Week for Safety and Health at Work, which is set to be full of events and activities for you to take part in. This year the week is part of the Healthy Workplaces Campaign ‘Manage stress’.

However, when viewed as an organisational issue rather than an individual fault, psychosocial risks and stress can be just as manageable as any other workplace safety and health risk.
