The 2002 European Week for Safety and Health, starting on October 14, will focus on the prevention of mental and physical abuse in the workplace and the hidden costs to businesses of lost working days. An estimated 500,000 workers in Great Britain alone report that they have been made ill by work-related stress. Other sources suggest one in five workers report their work to be very or extremely stressful. The causes are diverse and complex but are essentially associated with the design and organization of work, including its management. Typically, the risks facing workers can cause stress and include violence, threats of violence, verbal abuse from members of the public and bullying by work colleagues.
