New Survey by the International Stress Management Association (ISMA) UK
Carole Spiers is chair of ISMA UK, a stress and mental health charity and founder of International Stress Awareness Week, and wants to encourage you to take part in ISMA UK annual survey, which carries great authority and enjoys wide media exposure.
This year’s survey is focused on workplace automation stress, a topic that’s currently front-of-mind with the stress management industry, as well as the large numbers affected by stress at work.
Carole asks for your views, and very much hope you will help to enrich the research by taking part in the survey.
To extend the scale of the survey, and raise its profile in the media, you may also care to encourage some of your own contacts to take part.
Data collection ends on 27 September 2018, so Carole hopes to hear from you before that date, in advance of International Stress Awareness Week.
Check out the events – and maybe organise one of your own.
Remember – it’s an international event. Countries from around the world are invited to participate.
Carole very much hopes that you will support ISMA in this important piece of research.
This month’s OSHWORLD FOCUS is entitled Celebrations of the 100th Anniversary of the Polish Social Policy.
Training: Update your 2018 diaries with training for workers at all levels
Whether you are a manager, director, safety representative, supervisors or worker it is time to:
- check out the training needed in your workplace.
- look at the latest additions to the Diary of Events and you will see plans have been made already worldwide well into 2018 offering training courses, symposiums, webinars and conferences in many places in the world on a wide range of subjects.
- make sure you do not put off training for yourself and your staff. In these days of tighter budgets perhaps training may be put on the “back-burner” – but think again how you can keep up with the latest techniques and training opportunities.
- remember accidents and ill health in the workplace is costly.
Remember that even if you cannot attend these many events, speakers and organisers are often willing to share their knowledge. Look at the details – where possible, we add in the web sites of these events, so you can request further information. And do let me know if you are organising any OSHE events so that these can be added to the OSHWORLD Diary.
