Educational DVD on Work Stress

A new DVD program from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's
(CDC) National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) describes
workplace factors that can create or exacerbate worker stress, and suggests
practical measures for reducing job-related stress through changes in work
organization.

The new DVD is designed to be a working resource for employers, human resources
managers, occupational health and safety professionals, workers, educators, and
others. It combines authoritative information with an easy-to-understand,
viewer-friendly presentation.

The new DVD program summarizes current information about the causes, symptoms,
and prevalence of work-related stress, and notes NIOSH's position that the most
effective way to reduce work-related stress is to identify and address
organizational stress factors in the workplace. The program includes case
studies to illustrate strategies that have been used by small and large
employers to reduce stress in the workplace.

The program is also available in VHS videocassette format, if requested. The
DVD version provides greater visual clarity and includes features not present
on VHS, including an interactive user's menu and supplemental reference
materials that can be accessed through the menu.
