Guide to tackling psychosocial risks in central government
A new guide to tackling psychosocial risks at work, which was researched and written for the European Social Dialogue Committee for Central Government Administrations by LRD secretary Lionel Fulton, has just been published.

The guide provides EU-wide comparative information on the scale and impact of psychosocial risk in public administration and for some countries more specific data for central government. It lists the range of risk factors, broken down by gender. The new report also catalogues the risks facing central government employees in a range of professions and services from employment services to labour inspections through tax administrations to prison services. The guide gives concrete real-life examples of good practices, collective agreements and case studies on how public administrations are actively changing work practices to counter PSR within their places of work.

The guide has been translated into 7 languages and is supported by a short video. There is also a separate background study looking at the issues covered by the guide in greater detail.

The material is available at:
