“What does HSE require UK employers to do about stress?

Employers have duties under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations, 1999, to assess the risk of stress-related ill health arising from work activities; and under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, to take measures to control that risk. The HSE proposes an approach based on a set of Management Standards that provide guidance which is intended to help and encourage employers to meet these existing legal obligations. There are practical things that organisations can do to manage the risks associated with work related stress.

HSE’s Management Standards for Stress website provides employers with a comprehensive risk assessment approach to identifying, exploring and tackling work related stress. (See HSE’s Guidance.).The web based guide complements HSE’s guide ‘Managing the Causes of work related stress, A step-by step approach using the Management Standards’ published 2007″
