CESI and EU sectoral social dialogue committee on central government administrations open tender procedure on study on health & safety in central government administrations

The main aim of this contract is to provide social partners with two products as follows:
• a background European comparative study relating to psychosocial risks in central government administrations;
• a user-friendly step-by-step guide based on the study and inputs from the members of the SDC CGA;
• a contribution to the preparation of the content of two theme-based seminars in 2016 in Vilnius and Madrid and of the final project conference in March 2017 in Berlin; and
• assistance in the preparation of a script of a short video to illustrate the guide.

The research is part of a health and safety project seeking support from the European Commission under budget line 04.03.03.01. The project aims at better tackling and preventing psychosocial risks (stress, burn-out, etc.) in the sector of central government, against a background of restructuring, work intensification and ageing workforce. More specifically, it will examine the use and efficiency of risk assessment procedures and the chain of responsibility of the different stakeholders (management, health and safety representatives, trade unions and labour inspectors, occupational doctors etc.) involved at the workplace.

The duration of the project is 18 months (November 2015-May 2017). The deadline to participate in the tender procedure is February 4 2016.
