The UK Health and Safety Executive have launched a new site for work related stress and stress management. Some interesting statistics on there like:
“The 2007 Psychosocial Working Conditions (PWC) survey indicated that around 13.6% of all working individuals thought their job was very or extremely stressful.”
In 2007/08 an estimated 442 000 individuals in Britain, who worked in the last year, believed that they were experiencing work-related stress at a level that was making them ill, according to the Labour Force Survey (LFS).
“9 out of 10 cats are not at all stressed” – OK I made that one up 🙂
