Topic of the 28th edition of the Occupational Safety Poster Competition: DEPRESSION
Depression is a disease that can affect anyone - regardless of age or gender. Its symptoms are very often neglected as they are believed to be just a temporary lowering of mood or a worse day that will soon pass. Nevertheless, it is a serious condition that disturbs regular life and work routine. It already represents one of the main health issues worldwide, and by 2030 is predicted to become the primary cause of premature loss of work capacity in developed countries. The National Institute of Health and Hygiene estimates that depression affects over 5% of the population in Poland.
Depression causes a gradual loss of zest for life and ability to feel happy, reduced daily activity and diminished ability to work. Depressive thoughts, anxiety and loss of meaning in life appear. Unfortunately, over a half of such depression cases remain undetected.
According to research, depression is triggered by a complex set of factors, however, in a third of cases the underlying causes are work−related. This may be due to a high stress level, unequal power relations around job requirements, poor management culture, a sense of being overloaded with duties, as well as workplace harassment.
In order to raise public awareness of depression, this year's edition of the OSH Poster Competition is devoted to this topic.
The prize awards ceremony in the 28th edition of the OSH Poster Competition 2019 and the official opening of the post-competition exhibition took place on June 25, 2019 in the main hall of the Central Institute for Labour Protection - National Research Institute in Warsaw. Interested visitors can see the exhibition at the CIOP-PIB headquarters until the end of August.

A record number of 351 poster designs was submitted to the competition.
