Stress tops list of work problems
Staff find that stress is their most common health and safety issue
Staff find that stress is their most common health and safety issue in the workplace, with those in the public sector being the worst affected, according to a new study.
The TUC conducted a survey of almost 2,000 union safety reps that shows stress is a more common problem in larger workplaces.
Bullying and harassment in the workplace has also increased massively in the past two years, the survey discovered.
The HSE’s website www.hse.gov.uk/stress.html gives useful information on how to identify stress in the workplace and measures to control it.
