SDC-CGA project ‘Tackling psychosocial risks at work’

The European social partners in central government have worked together to produce the first guide to tackling psycho-social risks in the sector. Budget cuts, restructuring, intensification of work, digitalisation and violence at work altogether have contributed to an increase of pressure on central government workers. The guide proposes a range of measures and above all timely and effective information in order to address the problem. The guide, summary, background research and video are available in a range of languages.

SDC-CGA project ‘Tackling psychosocial risks at work’

“Tackling psycho-social risks in central government: a guide for action” is a guide dedicated to tackling and preventing violence, bulling, burnout and harassment in the work place.

This guide was produced by the Labour Research Department for the Social Dialogue Committee for Central Government Administrations and is addressed to our afficiates, but also to all public sector workers and managers in central governments in order to raise awareness on how to tackle psycho-social risks in the work place.

This guide was oublished together with a video and a background research study on tackling and preventing psycho-social risks and violence in central governments.

Psychosocial risks in central government have become one of the most serioys threats to employees’ health and well being. This violence is to be found in many different work places, such as in prisons, employment, social security services, labour inspectpartes and so forth.

While this guide is primarily addressed to trade unionists and human resources managers, it is of values to everyone interested in improving wellbeing at work and contributing to a social Europe that promotes quality and available public services.

This guide is the outcome of a social dialogue project on psycho-social risks and third party-violence in central governments that was carried out in 2016 and 2017 with the financial support from the European Commission.
