Stress at work

Stress at Work: QNJAC Info Sheet 11 28/11/13
Work-related stress arises where work demands of various types and combinations exceed the person’s capacity and capability to cope with them. This QNJAC Occupational Health Information Sheet 11 advises employers how to comply with the ‘Management Regulations’ requirement to risk assess occupational ill-health arising from work-related stress. Inadequate provision in this regard may lead to personal injury claims being made. Produced by the QNJAC Occupational Health Working Group in conjunction with the MPA Occupational Health Working Group, this document focuses on guidance currently available; paybacks/benefits to business; HSE Management standards; and key performance indicators.

QNJAC is a collaboration to improve safety, efficiency, and productivity. It relies on industry expertise to come together for the mutual benefit.
