Work-related psychosocial risks (PSR) are a major contributor to the burden of disease in Europe. The Covid-19 pandemic brought to everyone’s line of sight the huge level of stress and its health impacts in the healthcare and long-term care (LTC) sectors. At this ETUI-EPSU online conference, a new ETUI report providing an evidence overview of PSR in the healthcare and LTC sectors as well as an analysis of relevant interview data collected from trade unions during the pandemic, will be presented. The speakers will also discuss the critical issues that must be addressed in occupational safety and health, as well as in employment policies, to ensure the right of health and care workers to safe and healthy workplaces.
