40 Portuguese Order of Psychologists Good Practices Recognition Healthy Workplaces Award An award to recognise and distinguish portuguese organizations for their innovative and remarkable contributions to safety, well-being and (physical and psychological) health in the workplaces.

41 Partnership with EU-OSHA The main objectives that the Portuguese Psychological Association committed when submitting the application as the official partner of the EU-OSHA as a FIAP members: Sensitize employers, managers and employees to work together to manage psychosocial risks and stress at work Mobilize psychologists in promoting healthy workplaces through tools and training provided by us. Create Healthy Workplaces Award which has the patronage of the Minister of Solidarity, Employment and Social Security.

42 Sensitize Employers and Employees We have held 12 conferences (Lisbon, Setúbal, Porto, Maia, Faro, Ponta Delgada, Funchal) We have sensitized the public sector and small, medium and large companies, to the importance of assessment of psychosocial risks and promoting healthy workplaces. More than a thousand companies have participated.

43 Sensitize Employers and Employees There was a clear adherence of 175 public and private organizations. We have signed the protocol with the Regional Secretariat for Health which will allow the assessment of psychosocial risks in all hospitals and health centers of Azores. We have signed an agreement with the city councils of Ponta Delgada, Oeiras, Lisbon and also Gaiaurb E.M. and Polytechnic Institute of Lisbon.

44 Sensitize Employers and Employees At this time over 20,000 assessments of psychosocial risks should be under ongoing process..

45 Mobilize Psychologists There was a clear participation of Psychologists in this campaign which involved more than 500 psychologists who further attended the conference and the presentation of COPSOQ II. We have done a training in Primary Prevention to 150 Psychologists across the country.

46 Mobilize Psychologists The Portuguese Psychologists have an online access, through their personal area, to a questionnaire assessment of psychosocial risks (COPSOQ II). They are also provided with a free online assessment report for individuals as well as groups.

47 Healthy Workplaces Award We organized the Healthy Workplaces Award under the patronage of the Portuguese Minister of Solidarity, Employment and Social Security, but also: In partnership with ACT (Portuguese Work Conditions Authority) With the support of the social partners: CIP, CCP, CTP, CAP, UGT IEFP, DGS and AEP In partnership with the magazine Pessoal - Media Partner

48 Training in Psychosocial Risk Prevention Together with the social partners, we have established a working group for the creation of a training platform in order to prevent the psychosocial risks for small medium and large enterprises.

49 Media Impact The Campaign has had a strong presence in social networks such as Facebook and LinkedIn. The site of the Campaign has had more than 20,000 visits. The social media have given a wide coverage to this initiative (35 news published in some of the major media such as the Correio da Manhã, Observador, Daily News, Exame, Pessoal, RHonline, Radio Renascença, SIC, TVI).

50 Main Achievements Thanks to this Campaign the Portuguese Psychologists and Psychology have gained significant visibility and become noticed. A large number of Companies has decided to assess the psychosocial risks, which is the first step in primary prevention. We have recovered the importance of psychologists being a member of each Company in the field of the Occupational Health Psychology.

51 Future Actions Our current goals are to continue these initiatives in the next 2 years trying to: Promote physical and mental health in the workplace Prevent mental illness associated with work

52 The next Campaign will be Healthy workplaces for all ages Our aim is to organize conferences to employers, managers and employees We intend to continue the training for Psychologists We will promote the Healthy Workplaces Award
