Managing Stress at Work


Recent research has shown that stressed workers cost British industry £3 billion a year. The Health and Safety Executive estimates that millions of working days are lost in Britain due to stress, depression or anxiety, or a physical condition caused by work-related stress.

The EEF (Engineering Employers' Federation) has now published a comprehensive new guide that gives practical advice to all employers on avoiding and dealing with stress at work. Managing Stress at Work is designed to help all businesses manage stress more effectively. Effective stress management can produce substantial benefits, including reduced absence, increased work quality and performance, reduced resistance to change, improved relationships with customers, colleagues and suppliers, and reduced staff turnover. It contributes to good company performance and is a key part of a positive proactive human resources policy.

The guide contains sections on:

· What is stress?
· Why does it matter?
· The business case
· The legal case
· How to recognise stress
· How stress arises
· What can be done
· Stress risk assessment
· Managing stress

Managing Stress at Work describes the nature of the problem and what the law requires. Most importantly, it provides guidance to help companies meet their responsibilities.

Further information is available from the EEF’s Health & Safety Manager, Gary Booton. Copies of the guide, priced at £17.50 (£13 to EEF members), can be obtained from EEF Publication Sales, telephone: 020 7222 7777.
