Your legal duty: Stress risk assessments


In 2020/21, 822,000 employees reported suffering from stress, anxiety and depression, with over half of these reporting that this was made worse by the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic.

As an employer, you have a legal responsibility to tackle workplace stress by completing stress risk assessments. It’s one of the most effective ways to address workplace stress, keep your employees happy and safe, and reduce absences!
