Managing Workplace Stress

Why This Training?

Managers can no longer afford to turn a blind eye to workplace stress. Legal claims in the UK have now become a reality where employers fail to take reasonable steps in preventing stress at work.

The Health and Safety Executive now say that “Stress should be treated like any other health hazard” and have identified six key risk factors which organisations need to consider in order to minimise stress.

The following one-day course in workplace stress management training provides managers with the skills and strategies to play a leading part in reducing team stress. It can be combined with the Stress Management Skills Course, if managers want to link this training with their own stress reduction.
