Workplace stress affects productivity. It affects the physical and emotional health of your employees.
It is a leading cause of sickness absence – in fact, statistics show that stress is behind one in even five visits to the GP as it causes an array of symptoms – some more obvious than others. You can find out more about the symptoms of stress in a previous OHBM article here.
As an employer you should carry out sufficient risk assessments to identify areas of potential stress. And tackle any problems identified.
OHBM uses audit tools to identify stress issues. We can refer at short notice to experienced psychologists for stress management, assessment and treatment programs.
