HSE to devote part of its website to stress

The
Health and Safety Executive is to launch a revised section on its website
offering information and training material on workplace stress.

The
launch will take place on HSE’s stand at the Safety, Health & Environment
Solutions 2002 exhibition and conference on 15 October at the Harrogate
Conference Centre.

HSE’s
stand will have an area dedicated to the multimedia presentation of products,
programmes and services in a theatre-style environment. In addition to stress,
subjects covered during the presentations will include COSHH essentials,
asbestos, manual handling, slips and trips. Inspectors will also be on hand to
offer advice.

The
new stress web pages will offer detailed and regular updates covering general
information, resources, and case studies.

Other
areas covered include the latest development on management standards and
contact details for those keen to become more involved in stress prevention.

The
site will also offer additional materials to help managers complete a risk
assessment for work-related stress, and take action based on their findings.

Employers
will be invited to contribute examples of their actions on work-related stress
to help develop the site further.
