Development of a European psychosocial Risk Management Framework

Objective

The proposed PRIMA-EF project will focus on the development of a European framework for psychosocial risk management with a special focus on work-related stress, and workplace violence (including harassment, bullying and mobbing).
The objectives of the project are:
a. to develop existing knowledge in reviewing available methodologies to evaluate the prevalence and impact of psychosocial risks at work and work-related stress, including physical and psychological workplace violence, harassment, bullying and mobbing;
b. to identify appropriate means of collecting sensitive data in relation to these issues;
c. to develop international standards and indicators on stress and violence at work;
d. to develop detailed recommendations and evidence-based best-practice guidance on the management of these issues at the workplace; and
e. to disseminate the results of the project to stakeholders and social partners including small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
The project will place special emphasis on high risk worker groups and occupational sectors and will address relevant gender issues and key issues relating to the implementation of best practice in the context of different enterprises and in particular SMEs. In addition, and in line with European policy on corporate social responsibility and social dialogue, the project will engage the social partners throughout its implementation and will link the project outcomes to these principles.
Through the project consortium, the results will be disseminated widely with t he support of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Labour Office (ILO). In addition, the consortium will work in synergy with partners in candidate and third countries and national regulatory bodies to ensure a wide impact of the project outcomes and the initiation of the development of an international network of centres of excellence in psychosocial risk management.
