Stress in the Workplace workshop

Mounting evidence shows workplace stress is a serious hazard posing significant risk to workers’ health and well-being. This training program is designed to equip participants with information that will enable them to identify causes of workplace stress, recognize its health effects and assess and implement effective controls.  Participants will learn that strategies necessary to find and implement solutions to workplace stress require collaboration of the workplace parties.

 This program includes several resources participants can use later in the workplace including the Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire (COPSOQ) which is a tool for assessing psychosocial working conditions, health and wellbeing.
