Information about the Work Programme "Psyche" of the Joint German Occupational Safety and Health Strategy
Stress, burn-out, depression: The increase of early retirements and days lost to incapacity for work attributable to mental stress is alarming. In addition, in many places there is a lack of knowledge about the correct prevention options. This is where the GDA work programme "Psyche" comes into play. Its slogan: "Stress reduzieren - Potenziale entwickeln" (literally: "Reducing stress – developing potentials"). The aim is to see that the workplace stakeholders are fully informed and qualified, including entrepreneurs, managers, staff representatives and those responsible for occupational health and safety.
