Stress Indicator Tool

HSE's Stress Indicator Tool (SIT) measures the attitudes and perceptions of your employees towards work-related stress.

Complementing HSE's Management Standards for Stress approach, the tool features a survey of thirty-five questions that ask about six key areas of work that, if not managed properly, are known to be potential causes of workplace stress.

The SIT provides a quick and easy way to determine the extent to which work-related stress is a problem in your organisation, and the likely root causes.

NEW! To understand how the SIT can be used as part of a preventative approach to managing work-related stress, read our brand new white paper.

Why should I carry out a stress survey?

Over 12 million days are lost at work a year because of stress at work. Employers have a legal duty to protect employees from stress at work by conducting a risk assessment and acting on it.

SIT: a quicker, easier way to identify and tackle workplace stressors

The new tool improves upon HSE's original paper-based 'Indicator Tool' which required manual completion and relied upon Microsoft Excel for its data analysis and results presentation.

Working with software developer Snap Surveys, HSE has produced a digital version of the tool that allows the survey to be accessed and completed online. The new SIT saves you time, administration and money and improves upon the paper version because:

  • you can now customise a number of survey elements including changing elements of the language used and adding corporate logos or statements.

  • SIT analyses collected survey responses for you and automatically generates an easily understood report of the results. This highlights priority areas and suggests the next steps that can be taken to address them.

  • the survey can be run at any time from your own secure web account, making the process simpler, quicker and more convenient.

  • the software will also provide benchmarking data as soon as it becomes available
