Managing Psychological Health & Safety at Work

The national standards body, BSI launched ISO45003 earlier this year. It is the first global standard to give practical guidelines on managing psychological health and safety in the workplace. It provides information on recognising psychosocial hazards for those at work, along with effective examples of how to manage such hazards and improve workers' wellbeing.

Stress Indicator Tool (SIT)

"Every employer has a legal duty to assess and protect employees from work-related stress under the Management of Health and Safety Regulations 1999."

Industry experts at the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have developed an online SIT which has been produced to measure the attitudes and perceptions of employees towards work related stress. It is now  available to pilot for free to businesses with a maximum of 50 employees.

The HSE has also recently launched Working Minds. This is a new campaign which aims to raise awareness in recognising and responding to signs of stress. It is aimed specifically at supporting small businesses. However, it reminds all employers of their legal duty to protect those who work for them and to promote, support and sustain good mental health in the workplace.
