A new teleworking and digital reality characterizes the world of work today. Millions of workers and their companies have adjusted to working from home. The physical location of work has become more flexible, but new challenges have emerged in this context, for instance mental health concerns have increased in the field of occupational safety and health. The factors affecting a worker’s health and safety clearly go beyond the physical workplace.

As the ISSA’s Vision Zero Strategy clearly calls for an integrated approach to safety, health and well-being at work, this webinar will address the well-being aspects at work that will support the promotion of a prevention culture.

Psycho-social factors have a significant impact on productivity and the organisation’s performance. A holistic approach to supporting the mental health of workers and addressing psychosocial factors can in turn have a positive return on occupational safety and health (OSH) investment.

Join us for this ISSA Webinar that will discuss good practices and strategies to promote well-being at work and to ensure a safe and healthy working environment for all, in line with the Vision Zero Strategy.
