Managing stress at work

A health and safety briefing provided by the IET.

The current view of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is that stress needs to be tackled in the same kind of way as other hazards to health in the workplace. This means that, under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, all organisations with 5 or more employees will need to have a written risk assessment in relation to stress. HSE also takes the view, however that the solutions for tackling workplace stress lie in the realms of good organisational management practice.
