Organisation & Employers responsibilities: 

The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) bestows duties on organisations to ensure their staff’s health, safety and wellbeing is looked after. As an employer with 5 or more employees you have a duty under Health & Safety Law to carry out an Organisational Risk Assessment to assess the risk of stress-related ill health arising from work activities, (Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999) and take measures to control that risk and where possible prevent it, (The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974).
We are aware stress has become an everyday phenomenon, which can have a colossal impact on businesses. HSE state work related stress is defined as a harmful reaction people have to undue pressures and demands placed on them at work. Statistical data provided by the Labour Force Survey (LFS) detail the total number of cases of stress in 2011/12 was 428 000 (40%) out of a total of 1 073 000 of all work related illnesses. Further to this the HSE note that health & social work, education, public administration and defence are the industries reporting the highest rates of work-related stress.

The Health & Safety Executive (2012) report that work-related stress caused workers in Great Britain to lose 10.4 million working days in 2011/12 based on the LFS data. Male workers accounted for an estimated 4.6 million days off work whilst female workers accounted for an estimated 5.8 million.

MIND 2010 corroborate these findings and detail that from their research stress forces approximately one in five workers (19%) to call in sick. MIND 2010 also indicate that cases may be higher than government research reported statistics as they have found that the vast majority of workers who do not attend work due to stress related illness (93%) say they have lied to their boss about the real reason for not turning up.

MIND 2011 calculated British businesses lose an estimated £26 billion each year in sickness absence and lost productivity. With greater awareness and mental health support, MIND believe businesses could save £8 billion a year. This is equivalent to £1,035 for every employee in the workplace.
