Development of a multilingual campaign toolkit for raising awareness and motivation to manage psychosocial risks in Europe’s micro and small enterprises
One of the tasks of the European Agency on Health and Safety at Work (EU OSHA) is to provide support to employers to implement their legal obligations in the field of health and safety at work. In particular, the EU-OSHA is keen to help employers in micro and small enterprises (MSEs) manage any work-related psychosocial risks to their employees, such as stress and burn-out.
This project developed a portable application, including a campaign toolkit, to raise awareness and provide supporting tools to employers. The toolkit was drafted on the basis of relevant international and national resources, including tools already available to assess psychosocial risks at work in MSEs. Its content should be simple and adapted to the reality of small workplaces.
The project took place in two phases: Phase 1 consisted of developing a master version of the toolkit in English and Phase 2 consisted of preparing national versions of the toolkits, covering all EU MS (and Croatia, Iceland and Norway).
Milieu’s experts provided support during Phase 2 for the adaptation of the toolkit to the national context. Milieu covered 9 countries: Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Hungary, Latvia, Malta, Spain and Iceland.
