Stress Indicator Tool (SIT)
Every employer has a legal duty to assess and protect employees from work-related stress under the Management of Health and Safety Regulations 1999.
Stress is a major cause of sickness absence in the workplace and costs over £5 billion a year in Great Britain. It affects individuals, their families and colleagues by impacting on their health, but it also has tremendous financial and operational impacts for employers.
Therefore, industry experts at HSE have developed and produced an online Stress Indicator Tool (SIT) that measures the attitudes and perceptions of employees towards work-related stress.
SIT provides anonymous feedback and is a quick and easy way to determine the extent to which work-related stress is a problem within an organisation.
Complementing HSE's Management Standards for Stress approach, the tool features a survey of thirty-five questions and assesses six key areas of work that, if not managed properly, are known to be the likely root causes.
Analysing and understanding these results will help develop an effective health and wellbeing strategy for the organisation.
