Employers have a legal responsibility to help their employees

According to the Government independent report – Thriving at Work – Mental health is one of the greatest causes of sickness absence.

With employers having a legal responsibility to help their employees, the Health and Safety Executive clearly state:

“Work-related mental health issues must to be assessed to measure the levels of risk to staff. Where a risk is identified, steps must be taken to remove it or reduce it as far as reasonably practicable.”


The cost of mental health related issues to organisations is huge

The report that was delivered in 2017 stated that there is a large annual cost to employers – as much as £33 billion to £42 billion.

Half of this comes from when individuals are less productive due to poor mental health in work and the rest from additional costs due to sickness absence and staff turnover.


Health and Safety Executive Management Standards Approach

By companies taking action to remove or reduce stressors to their workforce, they can prevent people becoming ill and avoid those with an existing condition becoming less able to control their illness.

HSE introduced  a “Management Standards Approach” to tackling work-related stress. This is a framework that helps employers tackle work-related stress and, as a result, also reduce the incidence and negative impact of mental ill health.
