    ‘Cut stress to create healthier workplaces’

    By Jonathan Brown on March 16, 2016

    ‘Cut stress to create healthier workplaces’

    Delegates attending a seminar have heard how businesses can create healthier workplaces, by combating the causes of work-related stress and ill-health, and supporting workers with mental health problems.

    The event was organised by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health’s (IOSH) Midland Branch East District.

    It heard that nearly 10 million working days are lost to stress, depression and anxiety each year as a result of a lack of managerial support or workload pressures. The figure could be cut with the help of occupational safety and health (OSH) professionals.

    Professor Derek Mowbray, director of the Management Advisory Service, told the seminar that while many UK managers are project managers, rather than people managers, they could be helped to improve their employees’ well-being by OSH professionals.

    ‘Managers need to identify stress’

    Shoosmiths LLP director, Ron Reid, meanwhile, said it is vital that OSH professionals make sure managers can not only identify stress in their workers but know how to deal with it.

    Peter Kelly, a Health and Safety Executive (HSE) psychologist, said companies that look after their employees will be repaid by those workers looking after the businesses they work for.

    And he said with advancing technology and the 24/7 nature of many businesses contributing to work-related illnesses, it is important that organisations strive to make their workforces more resilient to stress.
