HCC Dortmund

The intent of the conference is to promote knowledge exchange between OSH experts and several representatives of the business world. Targeting representatives of private organisations, federal institutions, federal ministries and OSH experts, this conference aims to raise awareness on the topic of stress at work and share useful tips for detecting and preventing stress at work. In order to have an in-depth analysis of the possible sources of work-related stress, the event will be structured in four sessions:

  1. Impact of economic structural changes on enterprises’ organisational structures, focusing on the impact of economic and political pressures on the working environment, and consequent sudden changes on enterprises’ structures and their impacts             
  2. Structural changes in the workplace as a potential source of stress and illness, with special focus on the “downsizing” phenomenon and consequent insecurity for employees
  3. How to manage structural changes efficiently, sharing useful tips for efficient leadership in changing phases in the workplace
  4. How to ensure safety, health and well-being in constantly changing working environments, with special focus on employees’ participation in changing processes in the workplace 

The conference will conclude with a session held by representatives from the business world, focusing on what HR administrators and work councils can do to strengthen employees’ resources.

Each session will be followed by a debate moderated by a BAuA representative.

ETSC - ‘PRAISE award’

Oct 20, 2015

As part of the PRAISE project, the European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) presents annual awards in recognition of organisations that have shown an outstanding commitment to improving work-related road safety.

Professional drivers are particularly at risk because of time pressure in their work. This can lead drivers to engaging in unsafe behaviour such as speeding, overtaking and following vehicles closely. Workload is also increasing and employers can face escalating pressures from clients to deliver faster and more cheaply. Drivers also have to deal with increased traffic, remote monitoring and irregular and long working hours, all of which can lead to stress.

As an official campaign partner of the Healthy Workplaces Manage Stress campaign, the ETSC’s PRAISE (Preventing Road Accidents and Injuries for the Safety of Employees) project addresses the safety aspects of driving at work and driving to work. Its aim is to promote best practice in order to help employers secure high road safety standards for their employees.

The PRAISE awards recognise organisations that demonstrate outstanding achievements in improving work-related road safety. Winners will be selected by an independent panel of experts appointed by the ETSC from three categories: SMEs (small and medium enterprises), large companies and public authorities.

EU-OSHA will be present at the award ceremony to deliver a presentation on the importance of healthy workplace, addressing in particular the key issue of stress.
