Work Related Stress and Cardiovascular Disease

Posted by Johannes Schenk on September 30th, 2008 — Posted in Employment Law, Human Rights Law, Labour Law

The way we behave in the work place has a profound effect on individual health.

Employment law is really a form of contract law but there should be a move to add some form of redress mechanism for the “personal injury” caused by negative behaviors.

See these following links for discussions on the the negative health impact of job related stress:

Stress responsivity and socioeconomic status. A mechanism for increased cardiovascular disease risk?

When you go to work tomorrow, be reasonable, be nice and behave. You heart will thank you for it.
