Course Overview

Stress is something that can affect all of us, and it contributes to a variety of illnesses. In fact, more working days are lost due to stress than for any other single reason.

Our Stress Awareness in the Workplace training course teaches you how to take positive steps to prevent stress, by remaining in control despite increasing pressure. It also highlights the tell-tale signs to help you recognise problems before they become serious.

The strategies you will learn can be established to prevent pressure from spiralling out of control, including positive changes to your daily routine, and learned behaviours for a more productive working life.

Statistics show there are around 526,000 cases of work-related stress in Great Britain each year, with nearly 12.5 million working days lost, which is more than 3 weeks for each case.

If you think that your staff might be susceptible to excessive stress, our Stress Awareness & Management Training will help you recognise and combat it.

This course is suitable for all levels of staff including management and employers. It also works well alongside our Mental Health Awareness Course.

To date, we've helped over 80,000 people become more aware of workplace stress in themselves, and their colleagues.

Why is Stress Awareness Training Important?

It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 ensure that employers have a legal responsibility to maintain the health & safety of all employees at work. This includes minimising the risks of illnesses or injuries relating to stress.

Health and Safety policy should address the issue of stress at work. Effective risk assessments relating to stress should be conducted and regularly monitored.

It shall be the duty of every employer to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of all his employees. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, Section 2 (1)

Helping employees recognise and tackle stress also goes some way to fulfilling the duty of the employee to his or her colleagues:

It shall be the duty of every employee while at work to take reasonable care for the health and safety of himself and of other persons who may be affected by his acts or omissions at work The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, Section 7

Benefits to Your Business

Stress, or stress-related illnesses, now account for over half of all workplace absences.

As many as 15.4 million working days were lost last year at an estimated cost of £34 to £43 Billion to employers. This number is only expected to rise in the future.

Our Stress Awareness & Management Training course will help you to break this trend, by providing the knowledge needed to recognise, reduce, and ideally, prevent stress in the workplace.
