Covered in this course
This training course is broken down into 3 sections
- 1 Understanding Stress
- 2 Identifying Stress
- 3 Reducing and Preventing 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.
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.
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.
About this course
Stress is something that can affect all of us - it's something that can contribute to a great many illnesses, and more working days are lost due to stress than for any other single reason.
Our Stress Awareness in the Workplace training course shows you how to take positive steps to prevent stress; it looks at how to stay in control when the pressure is mounting and highlights the tell-tale signs to help you recognise problems before they become serious. It also provides strategies to put in place to prevent pressure from getting out of control - suggesting ways to change daily routines and learned behaviours to allow a better and more productive working life.
Statistics show there are around 828,000 cases of work-related stress, depression or anxiety in Great Britain each year, with nearly 17.9 million working days lost. If you think that your staff may be susceptible to stress, allow our Stress Awareness & Management Training to help you recognise and combat the signs of workplace stress.
This course is suitable for all levels of staff including management and employers. It also works well alongside our Mental Health Awareness Course. We also offer a white paper covering mental ill-health in UK workplaces and ISO 45003 & wellbeing at work, download it for free today.

Very helpful course
It was very helpful, I learned a few from this.
Never really stopped and thought
about the difference between pressure & stress. Found it very helpful.
A very interesting course and helpful to raise awareness
The content excluded some key reasons
A huge cause of stress is feeling undervalued whilst others around you are highly rewarded. Nobody cares about free meals, events or a pat on the back - money talks and talk is cheap.
This presentation made me realise I have been living with stress and how to recover from this cycle of stress.
Tell me about it.
Yes, informative, but for someone suffering from stress it’s nothing you don’t already know and a bit same old, nothing new there, sorry.
Why is this training important?
It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.
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
Stress and stress-related illnesses now account for over half of all workplace absences.
As many as 15.4 million working days were lost last year at an estimated cost of £34 - £43 Billion to employers - and this is only expected to rise.
Our Stress Awareness & Management Training course aims to help you break this trend by providing you with the tools to recognise and reduce stress in the workplace, as well as helping you take positive steps to prevent stress from building and becoming a problem in the first place.
