Stress in the Workplace

Wurkplace assists with cases of stress in the workplace everyday and have expert Consultants available to keep you up to date with legislation.  The experts also provide relevant documentation, processes and advice throughout.

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 includes legislation surrounding minimising the risk of stress-related illness or injury to employees.  This is an employer’s legal duty of Health and Safety and Welfare.

Stress at work is a major issue. Work related stress occurs when a person is unable to cope with the demands being placed on them. It can affect anyone at any time and in any type of business.

Stress is not an illness as such but is more of a ‘state’ that people get themselves into which, if not correctly managed, may develop into a mental or physical illness.

Sometimes there are clear signs that people are experiencing stress. However, sometimes the stress is only apparent to the person suffering from the stress.

Employers, HR Managers, H&S Managers, Line managers, Board Members, CEO’s and Supervisors are all responsible to try to successfully prevent stress in the workplace.

Here at Wurkplace we have developed a robust procedure for clients to help them manage any issues relating to work related stress.  Book a free consultation.
