Industrial relation practices related to psychosocial constraints at work in the steel sector

The EU Social partners in the steel sector, industriAll Europe and EUROFER, are pleased to inform you about a recent publication on psychosocial constraints in the steel industry, released by Eurofound recently.

The main objective of the report "Industrial relations practices related to psychosocial constraints at work in the steel sector" is to look at some specific company and sectoral features triggering psychosocial risks and their prevention. Company practices were assessed, focussing on the following three steel companies: ArcelorMittal in France, Rautaruukki in Finland and Salzgitter AG in Germany.

The report highlights that the three companies have developed specific actions to deal with, reduce or prevent the incidence and negative impact of psychosocial constraints on both workers and the company. Concrete measures are therefore taken to implement awareness-raising programmes, train managers and prevent detrimental outcomes.

Information arising from the study will be disseminated in the framework of the Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee on Steel. It is also expected that the study will be of value and interest to the respective members in their work.
