Target Audience: Staff
The University is responsible for the implementation of measures to prevent work related stress. It is essential that managers are advised and trained on their part in managing this issue. We have a duty to risk assess all hazards in the workplace that could affect both mental and physical health. Consequently, this course is mandatory for all Heads of Department and any person with line management responsibility.
The aim of the session is to provide clear guidance on managing individuals suffering from work related stress using an approach based on the Health and Safety Executive's Management Standards for Work Related Stress.
The course aims to help managers
- Understand the impact of work related stress;
- Understand their role in managing work related stress;
- Be aware of the legal considerations that apply;
- Understand the approach based on the HSE Management Standards for work related stress;
- Be able to apply knowledge learned to real cases.

We want our training sessions to run at full capacity to ensure value for money and to get the most from group interactions and discussions. Cancelling attendance at a course should only be done as a last resort (some of our sessions are delivered by external training providers and we would incur a high fee if we need to cancel sessions based on low numbers). Demand is high for our training sessions with many having a waiting list and when a booking is made, others are turned away on the strength of that booking. If you have to cancel a training session we would appreciate as much notice as possible (at least 48 hours), and this can be done via the "Go To My Bookings" link.
If you would like to book onto this course, please contact Safety, Health and Wellbeing for further information.
