In support of the new Health & Safety at Work Act 2008 that came into force on 16th January 2009, Inner Physique, a leading stress management and wellbeing solution provider, is pleased to announce a free stress risk assessment service for all UK organisations with over 100 employees.
Managing Director of Inner Physique, Richard Adams, says:
“We are very pleased to be supporting the Government’s drive to help UK organisation’s take positive steps to assess the risk from work-related stress and take positive action to mitigate and manage that risk.
“We offered our HSE compliant stress risk survey at no charge for a limited time in support of the International Stress Management Association’s “National Stress Awareness Day” in November of last year, and the response we received from organisations across a wide variety of sectors in including local government, education, scientific, manufacturing, financial and legal was phenomenal.
“We are absolutely delighted that we have now found a way to fund this stress risk survey service for free on an ongoing basis.”
At the heart of the free stress risk survey is the HSE’s standardised, 35 question “Indicator Tool” which is now in its second generation.
The advantage of using these standardised questions is that organisations can compare their own results against UK national average benchmark figures and against the HSE’s own best practice recommendations.
Where Inner Physique’s system scores over standard delivery mechanisms is in its user friendly web portal based delivery and reporting system that makes the project management and administration of a stress survey much quicker and easier than would otherwise be possible, whilst simultaneously providing greater security and a far better end user experience for the employees being surveyed.
All results are completely confidential and the sophisticated graphical and textual reporting functionality provides far more flexible and useful data interpretation than traditional methods.
