Time to End Stress in the EU!

Stress has become an epidemic. More than half of all working days lost in the EU are caused by work-related stress. It is time for a new EU directive on psychosocial risks at work.

4 in 5 managers express concern about work-related stress. More than half of all workers in the EU report that work-related stress is common in their workplace. 89% of employers state that complying with the legislation is the main reason why they manage occupational health and safety. This is why we call on the EU Commission to propose new EU legislation on psychosocial risks at work.

Only a few member states have clear legislation about psychosocial risks. It is time to #EndStress in the EU!
