Improving Health Outcomes in the Workplace: Outcomes of the “PsyHealth worXs” project.

Organised as monthly 1-hour-webinars, the ultimate goal of the seminar series “Community and Education in Action” is to assemble like-minded intellectuals and professionals from our community to trade ideas, thoughts, and views related to a specific EIT-Health topic especially focused in the Education Pillar.

 

We all know reports on how work can make us sick. And we all know what stresses us out in our jobs. However, only 30% of European companies put the systematic optimisation of working conditions for maintaining worker well-being on their to-do list. This seminar introduces feasible procedures for enabling participants to handle the process of the legally required psychosocial risk assessment. We will identify relevant working conditions, discuss their potential for being a risk for well-being and explore simple preventive measures to ensure that unnecessary stressors do not get in our way in completing our jobs with satisfaction.

The road to a health-promoting workplace through a systematic psychosocial risk assessment.
