Concentrating on a major cause of occupational ill health, which can contribute to absence, high staff turnover and poor performance. These management standards describe how conditions that reflect high levels of health, well-being and organisational performance will help employers, employees and representatives. This guide will enable employers to identify any gap between current performance and HSE set conditions and will assist in developing solutions. Addressed to those with responsibility for co-ordinating stress risk assessment and to human resources managers, health and safety officers, trade union representatives or line managers.

Also includes a CD-ROM which contains additional guidance and analysis tools. 


What is stress?

Stress is the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressures or other types of demand placed on them. There is a clear distinction between pressure, which can create a ­'buzz' and be a motivating factor, and stress, which can occur when this pressure becomes excessive.

How big is the problem?

  • About 1 in 7 people say that they find their work either very or extremely stressful (Psychosocial working conditions in Britain. in 20071)
  • In 2005/06 just under half a million people in Great Britain reported experiencing work-related stress at a level they believed was making them ill
  • Depression and anxiety are the most common stressrelated complaints seen by GPs, affecting 20% of the working population of the UK
  • When stress leads to absence" the average length of sick leave is 30.1 days (Labour Force Survey 2005/062). This average is much higher than the average length of sick leave for work-related illness in general (21.2 days).
  • A total of nearly 11 million working days were lost to stress, depression and anxiety in 2005/06
  • HSE research in 2003 into offshorework3 found approximately 70% of common work-related stressors are also potential root causes of accidents when they were caused by human error.
