Wellbeing and Stress Risk Assessment

Occupational Health

Wellbeing and Stress Risk Assessment

“The adverse reaction people have to excessive pressures or other types of demand placed on them at work.”

There is a difference between pressure and stress. Pressure can be a good thing that motivates people and is a key part of a persons job. However, if pressure becomes excessive then a person will begin to develop signs of stress. Stress is a natural reaction to too much pressure.

We are all different and different tolerances and thresholds to the amount of pressure we can cope with and how we respond when we get stressed. What is important is recognising that when a person becomes stressed they are reaching or have over reached their ability to cope with the demands placed on them. Whatever level in a company the inability to cope can result in mental and ill health issues. Stress can also result from having too few demands, as people will become bored, feel undervalued and lack recognition. If they feel they have little or no say over the work they do or how they do it, this may cause them stress.

As a company you have a duty under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations to assess the risks associated with work demands and pressure in you organisation and have arrangements and strategies in place to safeguards your employees health.
