Managing Work-Related Stress at an Organisational and Individual Level
HSL is to run a 2 day course on Managing Work-Related Stress at an Organisational and Individual Level.
18 - 19 June 2013
This is a comprehensive
2 day course that considers the management of
work-related stress at the organisational level and examines
individual stress management.
Day one outlines the key elements of HSE's Management
Standards for Work-Related Stress and the associated risk
assessment approach. It provides guidance on how to use the
approach in your organisation and affords the opportunity to
explore its practical application.
Day two focuses on individual case management.
This outlines a practical method of conducting an individual
stress risk assessment, how to communicate with an individual
during sickness absence and how to effectively manage the return to
work process. This part of the course focuses specifically on
individuals with work- related stress.
The programme includes a discussion of the legal
aspects associated with work-related stress and how to
practically implement the risk assessment approach at an
organisational and individual level. The course is interactive
involving a variety of practical group activities and discussion
exercises, to help you take the approach forward in your
organisation. The course also affords the opportunity to share
experiences with other delegates and HSL experts.
