Supporting Your Staff
Stress has been identified as one of the most common reasons for absenteeism and the consequent disruption to the workflow creates additional stress on those who have to cover additional workloads.Contact Me
Employers have a statutory obligation to protect their workers from stress in the workplace.
Under regulations introduced via EU law in 1993, employers must identify stress hazards in the workplace and eliminate them. These interventions should be on the personal, individual level and across the entire workplace.
According to Irish Health, “Irish Life estimates that stress related injuries have caused a 15-20% increase in average disability insurance costs. This rise might have been 10-15% higher again were it not for claims management techniques. Across the insurance industry, the cost of stress could be as high as £15 million.”
