Reactive stress management is no longer an option

The Health and Safety Executive has adopted work related stress as a 10-year priority programme. They have defined stress as:
The adverse reaction a person has to excessive pressure or other types of demands placed upon them

In 2004, the HSE, CBI and ACAS produced The Management Standards to monitor performance in managing work related stress in terms of both employee health and well-being and the enhancement of organisational effectiveness.

The Health Bank Account© is a dynamic proactive response to this initiative

Under UK law, employers have a LEGAL duty of care to ensure their employees are not harmed by work-related stress.

HSE are calling for a proactive response from companies to cover 6 key areas of work design. If not managed properly, they assert that these areas are associated with poor health and well-being, lower productivity and increased sickness absence.

The Health Bank Account offers an ingeniously simple analysis that provides statistics and response, considering the 6 key areas of work design, which the three bodies have indicated as the primary sources of stress at work.
