Marketing Text Training availability review for education and training courses in psychosocial risk management across the EU as concerns different groups (stakeholders, experts, practitioners and inspectors).
A review of training availability across Europe has been carried out through a survey with the support of networks such as the European Network Education and Training in Occupational Safety and Health (ENETOSH), the European Network for Workplace Health Promotion (ENWHP) and through the focal point network of the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA).
To identify key needs for education and training in psychosocial risk management across the EU as concerns different groups (stakeholders, experts, practitioners and inspectors), a review of training provided by various stakeholders was also carried out across a number of European countries and professional European Networks.
Training provided by national trade unions, employer organisations, national OSH labour inspectorate, professional associations or other relevant sources was reviewed using official institutional course catalogues and databases. The review covered the following key aspects:
• the topic and content of training
• the target audience
• the means of delivery.
Target group Researchers, ptractitioners and training providers
The review clearly indicates that the provision of training is not adequate as even though some areas of training for the management of psychosocial risk management were offered in many countries comprehensive training covering all areas of the psychosocial risk management framework was not offered by any provider. Furthermore, existing training was found to cover only certain aspects of psychosocial risk management, e.g. individual level interventions, time management, conflict management etc. even though significant differences have been found between member states.
Based on the evidence from the literature and the review of the availability of training it was concluded that to offer a comprehensive training package covering all areas of the psychosocial risk management framework.
