You may regard it as part of life but you can’t ignore it.
The Legal Case
“All employers have 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.” HSE
The Business Case
“It is a significant cause of illness and disease and is known to be linked with high levels of sickness absence, staff turnover and other indicators of organisational underperformance - including human error.” HSE
Whatever your personal view of stress is it is clear that in law it is something that exists and lies within the employer’s duty of care. It is also clear that it costs businesses in terms of reduced performance and direct financial cost.
We are familiar with a number of models for the evaluation and management of stress in the workplace. Generally, we favour the HSE Management Standards Approach. Accordingly, we can assist you in planning, organising and implementing a successful strategy for stress management.
We can also help in the evaluation and treatment of individual employees and have access to a number of therapies:
Consultation with a Consultant Physician in Occupational Medicine -
Often helpful due to their experience in dealing with work related stress and their ability as a doctor to liaise with other specialists including GPs.
Psychological & Alternative Therapies -
We have a holistic and open-minded approach to individual stress management. Accordingly, we can offer therapies ranging from CBT to hypnotherapy. Because stress is unique to every individual we believe we need to adopt a highly eclectic approach allowing us to tailor the therapy to the individual.
