Workplace stress is one of the key challenges related to workers’ wellbeing, Health Minister Hassan Qazizadeh Hashemi said on the occasion of World Day for Safety and Health at Work, observed globally on April 28. “Work-related stress is now generally acknowledged as an issue affecting all countries. It demands global attention to improve workplace environment and working conditions,” he said, ILNA reported. This year, “Workplace Stress: a Collective Challenge” was the theme of the international campaign. The Health Ministry has established a coordination committee comprising of representatives from competent organizations and ministries to oversee implementation of policies and monitor activities related to workers’ health and safety, he said. However, it was not clear what the committee had done with respect to curbing stress in the workplace.
