Psychosocial well-being in a sustainable working organisation

Summary

Psychosocial risks are considered an emerging risk across the European Union and a key challenge in modern occupational safety and health management. Findings reported that in Europe work-related stress is of concern for managers and workers due to its connection with risks for workers’ health and safety and with its subsequent costs for organisations. The increasing changes in the nature of work and organisations, and the growing competitive nature of the global marketplace have increased workers’ exposure to psychosocial hazards and the emergence of unknown hazards. Research in this area should contribute to a better understanding of the determining factors of physical, psychological and mental health and their impacts, and of the positive factors that may improve well-being including the development of integrated approaches to the management of psychological risks.
