Tackling work-related stress
Tackling work-related stress is one of Health &Safety Executive's health priorities - and if it's something you are also taking action on, then take a look at HSE's website for information and guidance on the right approach to take.
If you have decided that the Management Standards approach is the way you need to go, then you may be interested to know that HSE has developed an online version of the Stress Indicator Tool.
The Management Standards approach suggests using a survey as one (but not the only) source of information on whether work-related stress appears to be a potential problem for your workforce - HSE's Stress Indicator Tool is an evidence-based survey consisting of 35 questions about 'working conditions' known to be potential causes of work- related stress, which correspond to the six Management Standards.
There is a free version available on HSE's website, but HSE Publications and Products has also produced a software version of the Stress Indicator Tool that allows you to customise elements of the survey and run it online.
As soon as the survey is complete, the software analyses the responses and automatically generates a detailed report of the results, as well as a number of tables and charts. The report also highlights priority areas for action and suggests the next steps that can be taken to address them.
