EndStress.EU is a campaign initiative launched by Eurocadres with support from ETUC. More than half of all working days lost in the EU are caused by work-related stress. European and national European trade unions and NGOs  support the initiative for a new EU directive on psychosocial risks at work. Psychosocial factors such as excessive workloads, low job satisfaction and lack of support may contribute to or even worsen MSDs. Equally, MSDs can contribute to stress and mental overload. The current Healthy Workplaces campaign aims to enhance understanding of the links between psychosocial risks and MSDs and recommends effective prevention approaches and examples of good practice.
