Headline: Stress and psychosocial risks increased in working life in 2017
Stress is an increasing problem in the workplace. In 2017, 21% of economically active persons were very often stressed at work compared with 18% in 2012. In general, a rise was also seen for psychosocial risks. However, the frequency of physical risks remained stable. Almost half (49%) of persons who were stressed said that they were emotionally exhausted at work and were at greater risk of a burnout. These are some of the results of the latest publication from the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
