DuPont partners with EU-OSHA to advocate for safe and healthy workplaces
New partnership in the EMEA region
DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS) has joined the Healthy Workplaces Campaign, the flagship initiative of the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA). This campaign serves both to advocate for improved health and safety within the workplace, and also to provide resources to educate companies of all sizes on how to manage such issues effectively. For this biennium, the focus is on managing stress.
“We are proud to be an official partner of the 2014-2015 EU OSHA Healthy Workplace Campaign focusing on Stress Management”, says Mieke Jacobs, Global Practice Leader for Employee Safety, DuPont Sustainable Solutions. “In DuPont, stress management is an integral part of our integrated health services, focused on processes, systems and tools to reduce stress, and at the same time providing people with the tools to increase their resilience and adaptability to the ever changing environment. Leadership commitment is a critical element of our stress management program. As a well-known safety, health and environment solutions provider, DSS business works with many companies across the world to integrate health and specifically stress management into their HSE organisation and programs.”
“The good news is that psychosocial risks can be managed in the same systematic way as any other occupational safety and health risk,” according to EU-OSHA. “Tackling them can protect worker’s health and improve overall business performance, particularly long-term sustainability.”
To support the campaign, DSS will be disseminating information and holding dedicated sessions about managing work-related stress and psychosocial risks, both internally and with clients.
