Técnico and Ordem dos Psicólogos Portugueses sign a collaboration protocol

The two entities will jointly develop a wide range of actions aimed at assessing the psychological risks of Técnico’s faculty and staff.

Técnico and Ordem dos Psicólogos Portugueses (OPP) signed a collaboration protocol this Tuesday, 22nd January. Francisco Miranda Rodrigues, president of OPP and Teresa Espassandim, member of the Executive Board attended the ceremony representing OPP.

According to Francisco Miranda Rodrigues, this protocol “is an important step because it will design a role model to other institutions. Psychological conscience is very important and everyone must be aware of the importance of preventing psychosocial risks”.

After signing the protocol, the president of Técnico, professor Arlindo Oliveira, stressed the importance of giving due attention to other areas of activity besides engineering and reiterated the Board’s commitment to provide the best working conditions. “This protocol will allow us to create a system that will give Técnico’s faculty and staff the possibility of expressing their concerns”, explained professor Arlindo Oliveira. According to the president of Técnico, the main goal of this collaboration protocol is to help all those who work here to be proud of being part of this school.

Several training actions will be held under this protocol, aiming to build a team to assess psychosocial risks at work.
