Quiz – Mental Health in the Workplace

  • Work-related stress, depression or anxiety is defined as a harmful reaction people have to undue pressures and demands placed on them at work [HSE]. The latest estimates from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) show that the total number of cases of work related stress, depression or anxiety in 2014/15 was 440,000 cases, and the total number of working days lost due to this condition in that period was 9.9 million days. This equated to an average of 23 days lost per case. Mental health problems cost UK employers some £30 billion a year through lost production, recruitment and absence. So ignoring mental health in the workplace doesn't make good business sense. This quiz is based on information that can be found in the Barbour suite of resources under the topic ‘Mental Health in the Workplace’. By answering the questions below, practitioners can award themselves CPD credits. One, two or three credits can be awarded, depending on what has been learnt – exactly how many you award yourself is up to you, once you have reflected and taken part in the quiz Please note:  There may be more than one correct answer to a question, and further reading may be required to correctly answer the questions.

Q3 doesn’t really explain immediate discrimination nor why this is not prohibited conduct?

I’m happy with 7 out of 10, considering I live and work in New Zealand, with different legislation for safety, employment relations and human rights – most of these requirements seem like common sense.

It makes me realize that further reading is needed on this subject – 6 out of 10. That is why these quizzes are so essential.

I got 9/23 on a 10 question quiz, knowing that all the options for Q.5 were incorrect. I’m stressed as a result …

My mark (8) is out of 23, but everybody else’s is out of 10. What gives?

Brian
Brian

How can I have got 6 out of 23 when only 10 questions? Plus 2 of the answers sent had no actual answer attached! School report for myself and this quiz – could do better!

Andy

8 out of 23, i only saw ten questions so reasonably happy with that, will follow up.

Tom Berry

I was told that I scored 8 out of 23, and that the correct answers would be sent by email. I was sent 10 ‘answers’ but 7 and 9 were just a repeat of the question.

Mannn I’m shockingly bad at this I only managed to get 3 out of ten, I completed this twice changing all my answers and still only got 3. Back to the drawing board I think.

Alex Howard

OK, 8 out of 10 so, I’m pleased with my level of knowledge. I’ll find out which twoI got wrong when I open my emails.
I’m not sure of what others do but, generally, the higher the score I get on these, the less CPD points I claim. After all, if I get 10/10, I haven’t really learned anything have I?

Shocked as confident would be a breeze so will be interesting to see the gaps in my knowledge of a subject I have specialised in for years as a dyslexic DSE user operator suffering from Asthenopia.
