Managing stress discussed at European Healthy Workplaces Summit
Upon the completion of this year’s European Week for Safety and Health at Work, Cyprus actively participated at the European Summit in Bilbao, Spain, where on November 3 and 4, the campaign events were concluded.
At the European Summit in Bilbao, Cyprus was represented by officials from the Labour Inspection Department of the Ministry of Labour, Welfare, and Social Insurance, as well as by representatives of the Pancyprian Council for Safety and Health and representatives of Social Partners.
The Summit focused on managing stress and psychosocial risks in the workplace, while representatives from different European member states presented good practices in this area. Participants had the opportunity to exchange ideas regarding strategies and programmes for the management of work-related stress and psychosocial risks, and they also discussed how relevant research evidence can be put into practice.
In Cyprus, within the framework of this year’s European Week for Safety and Health at Work which took place on October 19-23, officers of the Labour Inspection Department implemented a special programme that includes onsite visits to workplaces, participation in meetings of Safety Committees, discussion with employees and distribution of information material. Information was also disseminated through radio and television channels.
The Campaign website (www.healthy-workplaces.eu) features a wide range of practical tools to help businesses improve the level of management and employee participation in matters relevant to the European Week for Safety and Health at
