Campaign Guide

The Campaign Guide presents the main principles and objectives of the Manage stress campaign. It includes definitions of stress and psychosocial risks

The key task of the 2014–15 campaign, ‘Healthy workplaces manage stress’, is raising awareness of stress and psychosocial risks in the workplace and encouraging employers, managers and workers and their representatives to work together to manage those risks.

The Campaign Guide presents the main principles and objectives of the campaign. It includes definitions of stress and psychosocial risks, and contains useful facts and figures to help you in your awareness-raising activities.

Tackling stress and psychosocial risks creates a healthy work environment, improves worker well-being and business performance. To promote these outcomes, the main focuses of the campaign are:

  • To raise awareness of the growing problem of work-related stress and psychosocial risks.
  • To provide and promote the use of simple, practical tools and guidance for managing psychosocial risks and stress in the workplace.
  • To highlight the positive effects of managing psychosocial risks and stress in the workplace, including the business case.

The Campaign Guide explains the background to the problem and why it is so important to tackle it. It outlines the warning signs and how to prevent and manage psychosocial risks, providing information on resources and support. Finally, as participation is key to the success of the campaign, there is lots of inspiration and ideas for getting involved.
