Introduction

This week marks the start of European Safety Week with it's Theme "Healthy Workplaces Manage Stress". Stress can be a major issue but together we can better manage and reduce the risk of occurrence. Work Related Stress (WRS) can be tackled by working with your manager to identify issues at source and agreeing realistic and workable ways to reduce the risks. The HSE have taken this opportunity to revisit this issue with the focus on providing helpful information and tools for all our colleagues to help better manage stress. The investment in time and resources in managing stress will pay for itself in the form of a healthier workforce and workplace environment for the HSE.

Watch Rosarii Mannion, National Director of HR, HSE introduce the HSE's campaign, its focus and what it hopes to achieve. Rosarii makes reference to the HR Guide to Creating a Positive Work Environment. For a copy of this guide, please click here.



The HSE have developed a week centred around the Cycle of Stress Management. This cycle illustrates the step by step approach required to eliminate/reduce the stressors associated with this hazard. The Cycle of Stress Management centres around the employee. For more information and an introduction to the campaign please click here

Information is supplied on each stage of the cycle to enable both managers and employees to better equip themselves to deal effectively with stress culminating in a resource pack.
