Work Related Stress

By July 10, 2019 No Comments

In recent times there has been much recognition of the importance of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS). Many of the recommendations have been for physical safety, but what about mental safety? Many places of employment are starting to focus on their employees emotional health, watching them for signs of stress and distress. Work place stress is on the rise as employers are pushed to raise profit margins and maximise productivity.

Of course this stress then trickles down to the workers, leaving them vulnerable as they deal with conflict from customers, pressure to perform to a higher and higher standard, clashes with other employees and unrealistic expectations from their managers. This can affect their productivity, can leave them unable to cope with day to day issues and they can find themselves depressed.
