University of Évora distinguished as a healthy workplace

13 April, 2022

The distinction follows the application made by the University of Évora (UÉ) to the 4th edition of the campaign “Healthy Workplaces Manage Stress”, promoted by the Portuguese Psychologists’ Association (OPP), which includes the Healthy Workplaces Award – Healthy Workplaces 2022, which recognizes Portuguese organizations with management practices promoting safety, well-being, and health in the workplace.

Initiatives such as the “Healthy University” project, the Plan for Gender Equality, the Tuition Fee Exemption Scheme for Non-Teaching Staff, or the “UBike” and “Concilia” projects were highlighted in the application that earned the Healthy Workplaces 2022 Seal to the University of Évora.

The Healthy Workplaces Award is promoted by the OPP, in partnership with the Authority for Working Conditions (ACT) and the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA), and is highly sponsored by the Ministry of Labour, Solidarity and Social Security, the Ministry of Health and the National Health Service.
