Conclusion • There should be a focus on small- and medium-sized enterprises (SME) – Conclusion • There should be a focus on small- and medium-sized enterprises (SME) – they have the worst formal organisation (but sometimes a good informal one). Hence, instruments to assess psychological stress in workplaces must be simple. • It takes years to build up a nationwide infrastructure (qualification, guidelines and instruments to support enterprises, website, media coverage) before enterprises are reached, informed and motivated. Therefore, a program dealing with psychological stress in the workplace should last at least about 10 years. 17 Dr. Torsten Kunz, Unfallkasse Hessen
