Promotion of mental health as a management task - E-learning tool for managers - News from NCO
The psyGA project (under the project leadership of BKK federal association, NCO Germany) offers practical support in the form of different materials and tools for companies of any size in all industries. The eLearning tool for the promotion of mental health provides easy to understand suggestions explaining how managers can protect their employees from excessive stress and stay healthy themselves. It sensitises superiors for perceiving stress signals and provides support for appropriate dealing with over-stressed employees. In addition, managers receive suggestions for dealing differently with own stress factors. The eLearning programme is aimed at the promotion of mental health by means of a health appropriate management style. It is a fact that stress can have a "contagious" effect. This applies particularly to stress experienced by managers; employers or superiors often pass stress on to their employees. Accordingly, stress prevention always starts with the manager himself. The eLearning tool requires between 45 and 75 minutes - without or with three self-tests: http://psyga.info/elearningtool/. You can also download the tool.

PEROSH paper on sustainable workplaces of the future
PEROSH, the Partnership for European Research in Occupational Safety and Health, has published an interesting new paper on 'Sustainable workplaces of the future - European Research Challenges for Occupational Safety and Health'. Via a consultation process, the PEROSH members identified the major trends and future challenges in the world of work and their impact on OSH. They also analysed future research needs, solutions and deliverables that will be necessary in the long run to ensure a healthy working life for Europe's workforce. The consultation of the PEROSH member institutes led to the prioritisation of seven main research challenges that are significantly prevalent and innovative in terms of preventing ill health and occupational accidents.
- Sustainable employability to prolong working life
- Disability prevention and reintegration
- Psychosocial well-being in a sustainable working organisation
- Multifactorial genesis of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs)
- New technologies as a field of action for OSH
- Occupational risks related to engineered nanomaterials (ENM)
- Safety culture to prevent occupational accidents
