A new, free, live, virtual event from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). 

Employers have a legal duty to protect workers from stress at work by undertaking a risk assessment and acting on it. Recognising the signs of stress will help employers to take steps to manage, mitigate and prevent the negative affect that stress has on a workforce.

In this event HSE will raise awareness of the preventative measures that organisations can take to identify and manage work-related stress. The process of identifying conditions in the workplace that can cause stress and addressing them before they cause harm is the most effective way of ensuring that workers go home healthy and safe at the end of every working day. This strong focus on worker health and safety, in turn, benefits organisational performance.

This event will give you access to HSE experts and the HSE risk management approach. NEBOSH and TSO will join us to highlight official HSE training, resources, products and services. After the presentations, our expert panel members will answer your questions to provide further advice on how to identify and reduce risk, in order to prevent harm.

All attendees will earn CPD points. You can register to attend for free by filling in the form on this page, which will either appear on the right hand side of this page or beneath the presenters box.
