Course Description

Managing Stress at Work 0.5 day course Overview The pressures of work are an increasing problem for organisations. Limited resources need to be targeted effectively in dealing with the problems that can arise from stress. It is a legal responsibility for organisations to identify, assess and reduce risks that may give rise to stress-related ill-health. The aim of this course is to raise awareness of the implications for line managers required to manage the risk of stress at work. The demands of day to day job requirements often mean that stressors are ignored.

The course is based around the requirements of the HSE Management Standards and their translation into good management practice. Awareness of the requirements of the Management Standards will allow for more effective contribution towards stress risk assessments, when required.
