The project partners in association with the British Standards Institution have developed a standard on psychosocial risk management in the form of a publicly available specification PAS1010.
Psychosocial risk management forms part of the European Council Directive 89/391/EEC, which stipulates the assessment and management of all types of risks to workers’ health as employers’ responsibility. Until now there has been no recognized standard or official benchmark for good practice for psychosocial risk assessment and management so the new BSI standard, called a PAS 1010 (Publicly Available Specification), will help assessors address this area of workplace health.
The standard, and the accompanying training course developed as part of the PRIMAeT project, will be of major benefit to HR Managers, Occupational Health and Safety Managers, therapists, managers of small and medium sized enterprises.
BSI led the development of the standard with a steering group which included representatives of University of Nottingham , the World Health Organization, the Health and Safety Executive, the PRIMAeT consortium, the European Commission and several other European and international occupational health and safety organizations
Target group Enterprises in all sectors.
Result The PAS was launched in Jan 2011 and is available from the BSI.
Area of application To standardise good practice in the area of psychosocial risk management.
