Organisational Stess-Audit / Risk Assesment
The HSE defines stress as:
The adverse reaction people have to excessive pressures or other types of demands placed on them. There is a clear distinction between pressure, which can create ‘a buzz’ and be a motivating factor, and stress, which can occur when this pressure becomes excessive.
- About 1 in 5 people say that they find their work either very or extremely stressful
- Over half a million people report experiencing work-related stress at a level they believe has actually made them ill
- Each case of stress-related ill health leads to an average of 29 working days lost. A total of 13.4 million working days were lost to stress, depression and anxiety in 2001
- Work-related stress costs society between £3.7 billion and £3.8 billion a year (1995/96 prices)
There is a clear need to reduce stress in the workplace and to create a well organisation. This is driven by the legal and business case but also by the requirement for companies to become an employer of choice. By reducing stress in an organisation it can reduce its sickness absence, increase productivity and improve moral.
The Occupational Health Company can assist in developing stress policies and can guide businesses in how to manage stress in the workplace and to use appropriate tools and resources to enable you to undertake stress audits and risk assessments for your business.
