Why do I need to tackle stress in the workplace?
All employers have a legal responsibility under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 to ensure the health, safety and welfare at work of their employees. This includes minimising the risk of stress-related illness or injury to employees.
Statistics show that between 11 and 13 million working days are lost through work related stress in one year alone.
Work-related stress has adverse effects for businesses in terms of employee performance and productivity, employee commitment to work, accidents caused by human error, organisation image and reputation, customer satisfaction and potential litigation.
Prolonged periods of stress, including work-related stress, have an adverse effect on health - physical effects include heart disease, back pain, headaches, gastrointestinal disturbances, various minor illnesses; psychological effects include anxiety and depression, concentration loss, poor decision making.
Many people are unaware or don't admit they are experiencing stress at work and therefore employee absences due to stress-related illnesses are not always reported accurately
