Minimum health and safety requirements for the protection of mental health in the workplace – News Block

The study focuses on the analysis of national legislation and best practices in EU Member States that address health and safety requirements for the protection of mental health at work. The study reveals that efforts at national and EU level are currently insufficient to protect employees from psychosocial risks. Therefore, EU level legislation on work-related psychosocial risks is needed to set the minimum health and safety requirements for mental health at work. This would force Member States to take measures to protect employees and ensure minimum standards and equality across the EU.
