Preventing work-related stress

HSE guidance for managing stress at work


Stress, anxiety and depression is the biggest cause of work-related illness in Great Britain and numbers continue to rise.

According to the latest statistics (PDF) there were 914,000 workers suffering from work-related stress, depression or anxiety in 2021/22. 17 million working days were lost due to stress in this period.

The Health & Safety Executive’s (HSE) stress website has plenty of advice and includes examples of stress risk assessments tailored to different business sizes, as well as case studies and much more – including the stress talking toolkit showing how line managers can have simple, practical conversations with employees to help prevent stress at work.
