The Health & Safety Executive
The Self Reported Work-related Ill-health Survey 2001- 02 indicates that 13% of all incidence of work-related stress is attributable to the education sector – the second largest contributing sector. As a result, tackling work-related stress in education is a priority for HSE.
At the heart of HSE’s work in this area are the Management Standards for work-related stress. Launched in 2004, the Standards give employers a workplace standard and a practical framework to undertake risk assessment for work-related stress. The Standards enable employers to meet their legal duty of care for the health, safety and welfare of their employees under the HSWA 1974, and the duty to carry out (and act on the findings of) risk assessments for workplace hazards, which include work-related stress.
