Stress Management

Stress affects different people in differing ways but statistics show that 39% of all work-related illness is associated with stress in the workplace, and this can come from individuals being unable to handle the demands placed on them. While some occupations are more susceptible to stress than others, all occupations have equal potential for stress to develop. Over this courser we’ll examine what stress is and why it’s a problem, the causes and symptoms of stress, laws on stress and its contravention, and finally we’ll examine ways to minimize the risks of stress.

Through this course we will cover the commitments your company will lay out in your anti-harassment and bullying policy. We’ll examine the differences between bullying and harassment, what to do if this occurs between staff in or out of work and finally, we’ll look at some case studies that demonstrate some of the key points covered in this course.
