Preventing Work Related Stress


The overall cost to British employers of stress, anxiety and depression amounts to more than £1,000 per employee, per year.Workplace stress solutions from HSL.jpg

While some businesses recognise that they have an issue with work related stress, they waste time and money by treating the symptoms rather than identifying and addressing the root causes of stress.

Other organisations simply don't know where or how to begin tackling workplace stress.

In either case, HSL can help.


The benefits of preventing work related stress

The Health and Safety Executive advocates a step-by-step risk management approach to deal with work related stress and devised the Management Standards to help organisations achieve this.

The Management Standards cover six key risk factors for work related stress, and define the characteristics, or culture, of an organisation where these risks are effectively managed and controlled.

Using the Management Standards to control or eliminate the risk factors that contribute to work related stress can provide demonstrable benefits and return on investment including:

  • a reduction in stress related staff absences and their associated costs
  • improved employee health, wellbeing and morale
  • sustained or improved business productivity
  • an enhanced reputation as an employer committed to the welfare of employees


Don't let work related stress impact your people or business.
