Tolley's Managing Stress in the Workplace by Carole Spiers

Book Description

With one in five workers reported as having felt under extreme pressure at work, stress Is overtaking the common cold as the biggest cause of absence from work. Cases such as Walker v Northumberland County Council [1995] have put stress firmly on the workplace agenda. The HSE has established stress in the workplace as a health and safety issue that needs to be recognised and managed through the use of risk assessment. Management in all organisations is now under pressure to put preventative measures in placed and to establish effective management techniques in order to tackle work-related stress. Tolley's Managing Stress in the Workplace is a practical handbook that guides the manager through their responsibilities in this difficult area. It provides clear guidelines on stress management and prevention techniques and contains useful checklists, best practice recommendations, and case studies throughout, as well as HSE guidance. Tolley's Managing Stress in the Workplace addresses the key issues that organisations face today, including: * The nature of stress and its relationship to pressure * The legal and cost implications on the organisation * Identifying the current causes and effects * Bullying and violence at work * Post-traumatic stress after a critical incident * Stress and personal health issues * Individual stress management strategies * Developing and maintaining a robust organisation Being better able to effectively handle work-related stress makes for a healthier workforce, lower absenteeism, increased performance and lower staff turnover - all of which means that having the right systems in place could save your organisation substantial costs. Tolley's Managing Stress in the Workplace is a reference manual for managers, health and safety, personnel and occupational health advisors.
