Description:The main objective of the project is to identify stressors present at the workplaces and to assess their severity, including a proposal for measures to eliminate them or reduce their impact. Other partial aims of the project include identifying and mapping the occurrence of specific phenomena related to workplace stress in public administration (especially in central state administration), including the proposal of ways, methods and possibilities of addressing them, identifying the most common stressors affecting labour inspectors, recommendations for increasing their protection against excessive stress, threats of aggression and violence during their performance of control and advisory activities, and also the most common and serious stressors present at the workplace for the needs of carrying out inspection work, i.e. for assessing and evaluating working conditions in organizations. Last but not least, the project will map the issue in question throughout the Czech Republic and obtain up-to-date knowledge of the most endangered areas of human work in terms of the above risks.
