Preventing work-related stress in construction
HSE has launched a ‘Talking Toolkit’, which focuses on work-related stress in construction, put together with consultation from the construction industry.
‘It is noted that stress, depression and anxiety are the second biggest cause of work-related ill health in the construction industry. The earlier this problem is tackled the less impact it will have on workers and business and positive action can help to create a more engaged workforce, boost productivity and save money’, says HSE.
HSE has worked with industry to produce a toolkit on this issue, focussed particularly at small businesses with a regular workforce (employed and contracted).
The toolkit focusses on six conversation topics:
The toolkit is aimed at businesses with a regular workforce (employed and contracted) who want to start looking at this issue. It will also help site managers wanting to identify project-specific issues.
The ‘Preventing work-related stress’ talking toolkit is available can be downloaded here.
