Following the European Commission’s announced proposals for an action plan to improve EU rules concerning health and safety for people at work, member of the EUMH Alliance EuroHealthNet has called for physical and mental well being of workers to be included in occupational health and safety measures, stressing the important link between physical and mental health.

EuroHealthNet emphasized  the importance of health promotion at work, and in particular the prevention of mental ill health. The challenge for the European Commission is to consider how the changing nature of work is influencing health and well-being, and what impact this has on productivity and economic growth.
