REST@work project aims at investigating policies and measures against stress at work related to the SMEs of eight European countries (Italy, Portugal, Spain, France, Romania, Hungary, Lithuania, and Greece) and implementing participatory and innovative actions. In the detail, the project entails:

-         

an extensive and comparative overview on the implementation of the Framework Agreement signed on 8 April 2004 on the work-related stress and the Framework Directive 89/391/EEC on the introduction of measures to encourage improvements in the safety and health of workers at work, focusing on practises, approaches and strategies implemented in each participating Country;

-         

surveys and focus groups to identify the level of knowledge of the Framework Agreement and the actions in managing and preventing work-related stress risks at national SMEs level;

-         

dissemination activities including three international workshops, a final conference and web communication tools. 

Two are the main outputs of the project: a Handbook on the relevant results of the comparative and extensive research; a Toolkit including the recommendations to prevent and tackle work-related stress at national SMEs level.

Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini is responsible for designing research tools, implementing the handbook and share the main outputs collected by the research team.
