There is a “much needed” new online learning tool designed to prevent work-related stress now available.
Created as part of HSE’s Working Minds campaign, which promotes good mental health in the workplace, the new tool is made up of six short modules.
These take employers through relatable, everyday scenarios, such as how to recognise the signs of stress in individuals and teams like regular lateness to work, being withdrawn and higher staff turnover.
Businesses are encouraged to sign-up to the free-to-use interactive tool, designed by the Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) Working Minds campaign, to understand what they need to do to comply with the law.
The tool is useful and provides the simple and effective guidance that employers need to take action, helping them to understand how to meet their legal duties and understand how to include stress in their workplace risk assessments.
