Covered in this course
The Stress Awareness & Management Training course is broken down into 3 sections.
1) Understanding Stress
What is stress? In section one of our Stress Awareness Training, we look at the mental and physical impact stress can have on a person, how it makes you feel and the science behind stress. We also look at an age-old reaction to stress - Fight or Flight.
2) Identifying Stress
The amount of pressure that we can take varies from person to person, so it’s important to pay attention to how you are feeling and behaving. But as you know, how you feel can change from one day to the next, or even from moment to moment for some people. In this section, we’ll take a look at some of the stress factors so you can identify the signs of stress.
3) Reducing and Preventing Stress
It’s crucial to know what stress is and how to identify it, but it’s just as important to act on what you find so you can reduce or remove it. But of course, the best thing is to take early action to prevent stress from appearing in the first place. In this section of our Stress Awareness Training, we offer some effective strategies that can help.

I found the course interesting and engaging with very clear explanations and helpful graphics throughout. It will certainly increase my awareness and more importantly the management techniques will be very useful when I sense the "stretch" is getting out of hand. Thank you.

Legislations relating to Workplace Stress
It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work. Take a look at relevant legislation below.
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 together ensure that employers have legal responsibility to ensure the health and safety at work of all employees. And this includes minimising the risks of illnesses or injuries relating to stress.
Health and Safety policy should address the issue of stress at work and effective risk assessments relating to stress should be carried out and regularly monitored.
It shall be the duty of every employer to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of all his employees.
Helping employees recognise and tackle stress also goes some way to fulfilling the duty of the employee to his or her colleagues:
It shall be the duty of every employee while at work to take reasonable care for the health and safety of himself and of other persons who may be affected by his acts or omissions at work
