In accordance with the Stress Check System prescribed in the Revised Industrial Safety and Health Act and enforced on December 1, 2015, Nagoya University implements its own Stress Check System (hereinafter referred to as the “Stress Check System”). Under this system, faculty and staff undergo evaluations to assess their degree of psychological stress (hereinafter referred to as “Stress Check”) and, based on the results, may receive in-person guidance or other forms of assistance.
By conducting regular evaluations to assess employees’ level of stress, this system aims to alert employees to their stress levels by informing them of the results of their evaluations and thus stop mental health problems before they start. The system also strives to reduce risk factors by assessing sources of stress in the workplace and enacting reforms in workplace environment.
Stress Checks are not mandatory; however, they can help you notice your stress levels and provide an opportunity to prevent mental health problems from arising. We encourage everyone who is eligible to take the Stress Check.
Check period is from Thu,June 18 to Thu,July 9
Nagoya University faculty and staff (excluding those meeting any of criteria ①～⑥ below)
