The European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) announced the first wave of EU official campaign partners for its 2014–15 campaign “Healthy Workplaces Manage Stress.” BST EMEA is among 60 organizations across Europe partnering with EU-OSHA on the campaign.
“Healthy Workplaces campaigns are coordinated in more than 30 countries and are recognized as the biggest occupational safety and health (OSH) campaigns in the world. Stress, the topic of the 2014–15 campaign, is the second most frequently reported work-related health problem in Europe and is believed to be the cause of more than half of all lost working days. The campaign partners are aware of the positive effects that tackling psychosocial risks can have on overall business performance, particularly long-term sustainability and social responsibility, and will lead by example and encourage other organizations to manage stress, ” excerpt from press release.
This is the second year BST has partnered with EU-OSHA on the Healthy Workplaces Campaigns, raising awareness of issues related to occupational safety and health, and promoting the idea that good health and safety is good for business.
