Optimise the strength and resilience of your workforce
We can help your company enhance the resilience of your employees with strategic business support and preventative programmes.
All employers have a responsibility to:
- Assess stress risk
- Apply the principles of stress management – prevention, education and rehabilitation
- Ensure employees have the capability to do their jobs
Merely providing stress management services is “not a panacea by which employers can discharge their duty of care”. United Kingdom stress management case law is clear on the responsibilities of employers to provide, audit and communicate proactive mental health services to their employees in a consistent manner. The Management of Health & Safety at Work (MHSW) Regulations 1999 requires all employers and the self-employed, to assess the risks from their work on anyone who may be affected by their ongoing activities. The regulations require employers to carry out a systematic examination of their work activities and record the significant findings of any assessment.
We have been supporting businesses since 2003
