Title Five steps for eliminating unhealthy stress at the workplace
Original title Cinq étapes pour réduire le mauvais stress au travail [in French]
Bibliographic information June 2007, Vol.23, No.2, p.10-13. Illus.
Abstract The world of work has witnessed profound changes during the last two decades. Some of these changes have proven to be relatively detrimental to occupational health, as can be observed by the dramatic increases in morbidity related to mental health and absenteeism. This article presents a five-step approach that can be adopted when faced with risk factors of occupational stress: defining one's work-life balance; setting objectives; ensuring that the objectives are met by one's self and respected by others; working with dedication and efficiency; knowing when to rest and recover.
