Compensation solicitors in Garforth


Stress is the disease of the 21st century, and work-related stress in particular is reaching epic proportions. Compensation solicitors in Garforth at Accident Advice Helpline are called on often to help workers with work-related stress, because we are the injury claim specialists who have the most in-depth experience of the condition and its many manifestations.

How stress comes about

Work-related stress comes about when someone is unable to cope with the demands that their job and/or boss or employer is putting on them. It can cause significant illness, which often results in employees having to take frequent leaves of absence.

What is stress?

Stress itself is not an illness; it is a condition, but one that if left unaddressed can cause mental and/or physical illness to manifest. Stress is not the same as pressure; pressure is something that someone can put on themselves, or be subjected to from an external source in order to improve work rate or achieve targets. It’s when someone is unable to cope with these demands and/or pressure that stress itself materialises.

Stress through lack of demand

It is also possible for stress to come about for the opposite reason, i.e. by having insufficient demand exerted upon them. This can lead to employees feeling that they are undervalued and that any contribution they offer is unrecognised.

Making management aware of stress and mitigating it

Because work-related stress is as prevalent as it is today, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has issued a publication entitled, “Tackling Stress: the Management Standards Approach” designed to help employers to be aware of situations that bring stress about, and recognise that a restructuring of systems and processes needs to take place, and that perhaps attitudes to employees need realigning, too.

Stress-related statistics

According to the HSE website, there were a total of 428,000 cases of stress in 2011/12. This accounts for 40% of all work-related illnesses, and these statistics have persisted for the last decade. According to other information displayed on the HSE website, the following occupations have the highest numbers of cases of stress:

  • Nurses;
  • Teaching professionals;
  • Welfare professionals; and
  • Housing association professionals.

In most instances, stress is attributed to pressure of work, lack of support from management, and in some instances work-related bullying and violence.
