Stress Audit

Why carry out a Stress Audit for your organisation?
Employers have a Duty of Care to assess the risk of stress-related ill health under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and to
take measures to control that risk under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.  Stress is a known hazard and this duty includes workplace stress. A risk assessment approach can help to reduce stress and determine the causes of stress in an organisation.

To prevent stress, it is essential to identify the root cause of stress within your organisation. Employers have a legal duty to protect employees from stress at work by doing a risk assessment and taking effective action. As with any other workplace hazard, if employers fail to adequately protect their employees from work-related stress, HSE could investigate and take enforcement action if appropriate.

What is a Stress Audit?
A stress audit is part of the risk management approach and can be carried out online or as a hard copy. Get in touch and find out which option is
best for your organisation or we can tailor one to suit your organisation. When organisations have remote working employees, then it is mainly online with hard copies in the form of a paper audit which is then sent directly to YSM to maintain confidentiality which is essential when carrying out an audit.

The audit can be off-the shelf on-line or bespoke questionnaires covering all the main work-related stress factors and are compliant with the HSE Management Standards which are:

Change
Demands
Role
Support
Control
Relationship

The Stress Management Standards are HSE’s risk assessment approach to help employers manage the causes of stress in the workplace.

The results should be communicated to all staff and can involve them in finding solutions. Start to put an action plan into place and review progress on a regular basis and amend where required.
