It is widely recognised that stress is a significant problem. The Health and Safety Executive have provided organisations with the Management Standards to help identify and manage stress at work accordingly.
Latest statistics show that in 2008/2009 an estimated 415,000 individuals in Britain, who worked during the last year, believed they were experiencing work-related stress at a level that was making them ill, according to the Labour Force Survey, resulting in an estimated 11.4 million lost working days, (researched from the HSE website).
The legal case: the law requires employers to tackle stress. To carry out suitable and sufficient risk assessment for stress and to take action with any problems identified which will help to protect the organisation from costly litigation and accompanying poor public relations and publicity.
