European Foundation report on work-related stress

A report by the European Foundation for the improvement of living and working
conditions takes a close look at work-related stress, much of which, the
writers say, is attributable to changes, organisation and intensification of
work in recent decades.

The analysis is based on EU-member national surveys and research information
and recent research findings, the study set out to:

  • identify the prevalence and development of indicators for work-related
    stress, on the basis of country representative data from the EWCO national
    correspondents;
  • identify the proven or suspected causal processes behind these developments;
  • elaborate on the costs involved;
  • discuss preventive actions taken or required, distinguishing between
    organisational and individually directed interventions, drawing upon research
    information as well as good practice.
