Managing work-related stress as part of a prevention culture

July 2018
Sheila Pantry OBE

‘Managing work-related stress as part of a prevention culture’ is a new white paper from the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) that argues why you need a proactive approach that includes tackling the organisational factors that contribute to work-related stress.

It promotes the HSE Management Standards approach – a systematic approach to implementing an organisational procedure for managing work-related stress.

It also promotes HSE’s new Stress Indicator Tool survey software, designed to give you a scientifically robust insight into the six key areas of work design that, if not properly managed, are associated with poor health, lower productivity and increased accident and sickness absence rates.
