In the context of social policies and of sustainable development strategies, the fair distribution of opportunities among generations, combating poverty and social exclusion, promoting equal chances and equity as regards capital and income distribution are essential goals. The “health†term is as relevant as that of “safety†in ensuring wellbeing. The research of stress as a specific and alarming phenomenon of present-day society reveals hard to solve social issues and that is why the subject is quite frequently avoided. EU strategies and policies prove the importance of European initiatives in preventing health issues and promoting health in the context of sustainable, intelligent and inclusive development. Keeping employees healthy could increase the length of time spent in full workforce capacity and would thus support the ageing workforce. Therefore, national or global sustainable development strategies must be thoroughly coordinated with the other strategic planning documents aimed at these goals.
