Stress is increasingly a factor in lost working days lost and the overall reduction in employee effectiveness. It is important for all employees to recognise the importance of understanding stress and the guidance required to manage employees effectively to minimise risk.
Stress affects a large proportion of the population and can cause some serious risks to health. Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, all employers must ensure the health and safety of their employees, including minimising the risk of stress-related illness.
This qualification seeks to advise and guide those interested in protecting themselves and their workforce from the damaging effects of stress. It is relevant to all staff but is particularly appropriate for those who deal with the public, work to deadlines, are in a supervisory position and provide services or training.
