Stress Risk Assessment

All UK employers have a legal duty to ensure their employees are avoiding work related stress. The most effective way to do this is to conduct a stress risk assessment.

We can provide you with expert consultants who can undertake an efficient stress risk assessment for your workplace

Workplace stress risk assessment

Following the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, all UK employers have a legal duty to ensure the health, safety and welfare of their employees. Under the act, employers must undertake a stress risk assessment to identify any stress hazards to their employees and ways of removing or reducing these risks.

Under the act, the employer is responsible for ensuring that an adequate stress risk assessment has taken place. The duty of care placed on the employer by the act means that failure to conduct an adequate stress risk assessment can result in a charge of negligence and in turn, heavy fines. It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that a suitable and sufficient stress risk assessment is conducted; make sure you undertake a thorough one today.
